Boulge, Suffolk

a bit north of Woodbridge, the home of Edward Fitzgerald (1809-1883), translator of Omar Khayyam's Rubaiyat. Rosehips from Omar's tomb were germinated at Kew and planted on Fitzgerald's tomb in St. Michael's Churchyard, Boulge, in 1893. The original plant has died, but its descendents still bloom.
