~ A diary of my life in rural north Suffolk.

Harvesting Hecate Thoughts on life, writing, creativity and magic. Viewing always welcome by appointment in the heart of historic Kings Lynn close to the Norfolk, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire borders. This plant is found in woodland often forming carpets, also under hedges and in other shady places. You can also hire boats and equipment here. Parking available on premises. Their color is chestnut, ranging in shade from light golden to dark liver. I remember lying in a field full of them when I was very young and looking through their swaying heads at a clear blue sky — a wonderful memory.

The stems are a pretty pale yellow-green and are shiny and smooth. The flowers are olive-green in colour. The spongy white pith in the stems used to be scraped out and made into wicks for candles. I remember on wet camping holidays when young and there were many of those splitting rushes with my fingernail and trying to remove the pith in one piece without breaking it. This was in the days before Nintendos — simple pleasures!

We have had a very wet day indeed today. This is our pond this afternoon with rain-drops stippling its surface. I spent most of the morning away from home visiting the surgery then shopping in Halesworth and then in Bungay. This afternoon was spent doing household chores and then getting soaked to the skin in the garden.

I have planted some runner beans for my mother. She said she wanted ten plants so I planted ten in pots a week ago and nine have come up. This afternoon I planted three more which will give her a couple of spares in case she gets slug damage after planting out. I then went round the garden checking on the bird feeders. I have been cleaning and disinfecting all the feeders during the past week; waiting until each one empties and then bringing it in.

I have twelve feeders around the garden as well as a couple of bird tables and a ground feeder. The birds are very hungry and the food is disappearing extremely fast. The feeders have to be heavy-duty ones as our garden is quite exposed and the wind is strong enough to blow them down very often. The rooks also cause damage by swinging on the feeders and shaking the seed out for their friends waiting below.

In this rainy weather they cover the feeders with thick mud off their feet too. Squirrels are a real nuisance and can pull a feeder apart very quickly. I also saw a mouse in one of my squirrel-proof feeders the other day. When I went out this afternoon I found two of my peanut feeders had been taken apart and all the peanuts eaten. A blurred picture of my squirrel visitor. Another name for the yellow flag iris is the Sword Flag as its leaves are shaped like a sword and are also sharp enough to cut you.

The Dogwood is about to flower. New stems are dark red and many people cut dogwood back hard just to get the bright coloured stems in early spring. The berries are a shiny black and are very bitter. As R was off work all week he kindly offered to drive us there. It was one of those grey, fairly still days — not cold but not particularly warm either. We then go over a very high bridge spanning not only the River Waveney but also a canal cut from here to Reedham a village on the River Yare a little to the north.

This is the start of the Norfolk Broads, a large area of marshy reedbeds intersected by canals, rivers and broads lakes. A half mile further on is another little bridge which only allows one lane of traffic over it. This is at St Olaves, named after the priory that was here. We then drove through Fritton which has a Country Park with leisure activities — boating, fishing, walking. Also a horse and donkey sanctuary called Redwings. The pub is called the Decoy and the water here, which is a tributary to the Waveney, is called the Fritton Decoy.

We got to Great Yarmouth and E saw her specialist. We then went home. Great Yarmouth is not a pretty town. It has a beach, a dock area and associated industries but it is also very run-down and there is high unemployment and poverty here.

We saw an apologetic bus. A very rare creature. One thing I did notice while we were queuing at traffic lights before crossing over the bridge over Breydon Water was this building below. It was enormous with a thatched roof and an attractive weather-vane.

There is a blue plaque next to those great doors that will give a clue. The iron railings on the bridge are quite nice too. The Chandlery sells everything you might need on your boat while travelling on the Broads or down any of the rivers and out to sea.

You can also hire boats and equipment here. The ancient Bell Inn with its beautiful brickwork on the opposite side of the road to the Chandlery. This one has had a shed built on the top of it at some stage. Pill boxes are dug-in guard posts with loopholes through which to fire weapons. They were called Pill Boxes because they looked like old-fashioned pill boxes! Well, there you are; now you know. About 28, pill boxes and other hardened field fortifications were constructed in as part of British anti-invasion preparations of World War 2 and about 6, still survive.

There is one on the edge of the field in Mill Lane near us. It is still known as the Searchlight because of the searchlight that was used there during the war. The airfield runways are still marked out in the middle of farms and common land.
