A Springtime wonder plant!

Pollywiggle's garden is a mass of purple & pink blooms from this magic, small cover plant, which just spreads around the edges of all the borders. Pulmonaria, or lungwort, is perfect for early springtime colour in the front of flower borders. It pops up, seems to spread visibly in March, and blossoms well into April. It is a delight after the cold, drab winter days and lifts the heart. I have dug up numerous clumps for friends and it never ceases to please. It just continues to spread and is a beautiful contrast with the bright yellow of daffodils. This is my recommendation for and easy little springtime wonder plant!

Help for Toads

I am so pleased to see this newly posted sign in West Raynham, Norfolk - one on either side of a bridge over the narrow reaches of the River Wensum by the Raynham Estate near Fakenham. It certainly makes you scan the road ahead to avoid hitting what might at first seem like a clod of earth! I'm sure the frogs are grateful too if drivers slow down to help them survive their crossing. Thank-you to the kind people who care about our local wildlife.

Our new holiday season has started well with a rush of booking as well as a flush of spring colours from bluebells, clematis, poppies, pansies, pulmonaria and of course the magnificent wisteria, which spreads further each year.
Soon the roses, passion flowers, hollyhocks and foxgloves will add to the blaze of colours in this little corner of tranquility in the heart of North Norfolk rolling lanscape.
Special short break deals are always on offer for those wishing to escape from urban life and enjoy the countryside in this delightful and typical old English country cottage. Pollywiggle Cottage is ideally placed for North Norfolk's numerous attrractions for people of all ages and interests. Quaint flint villages, thriving market towns and of course the vast Norfolk coastline are all nearby.

Hunstanton - a family sea-side town for all.

The fossiliferous cliffs of Hunstanton
Hunstanton is a great place for fossil hunters old and young alike. The stratified red and white chalk cliffs are packed with prehistoric treasures just waiting to be discovered. The small 19th Century old village is now eclipsed by newer town developments with sealife centre, fairground, shops and range of eateries. Although on the East coast it faces west towards The Wash and Lincolnshire, it is one of the fewest places on this side of Britain which enjoys glorious sunsets over the sea. A cliff-top walk will lead you to a superb beach for safe swimming.

Novel Sculpture!

What a great way to increase interest in your garden particulalrly if you have an unwanted tree casting too much shade. This can be found at Hindringham Hall, North Norfolk - a super location full of delights, where you can wander around a moat to explore not just the garden & wildlife but also the handsome mansion on specific days in the year.
