Sunday was open garden’s day at Thetford , the hometown of Noseypotter ( Leigh )
39 gardens were open we didn’t manage to see half of them so many pretty gardens quite a few with river frontages ..
I know that you have seen Leigh’s artwork and sculptures before , I’m sure you don’t mind seeing them again …

First we had to run the gauntlet of prying neighbours peering from under the shrubs

we then had to pass poisonous Toadstools …….


Leigh was there to greet us in his usual friendly way … . Hi Leigh !
Leigh’s housemaid was with her new best friend waiting to relieve us of a little cash for her collection tin which was in aid of St Nicholas Hospice

Then into the garden we went where all sorts of weird and wonderful sights were to be seen ….


We saw the pups as well , they are gorgeous such cuddly little chubby things ,


All good things must come to an end it was time to leave , thanks Leigh for a wonderful day …


As we left we couldn’t help wondering what these people had done to upset Leigh . !!

It was a very enjoyable day , I didn't take too many photo's because you have seen most of them when Leigh has put them on , I liked no 4 . Leigh's faces have so much expression in them , it was a pleasure to see them close up real if you know what I mean ... he has some amazing fish ,they are huge and a shark ...
Titchy I was so tired when we came home I feel asleep almost at once ..:o)

If thats true Leigh I should be in for a big win when it comes ..LOL...

I liked your arch in your courtyard with the mirror in it for a start ! and I would love a stream at the bottom of my garden instead of a ditch , I could go on but I must be satisfied with what I have , have you seen that tree house at ' The Planes ' ? it's every childs dream to have one like that .. xx
