|Just a tad soggy under foot. No stopping me though!|
|A sea of umbrellas (note girl in |
this was definitely a gumboots day)
|Loving the planted pushy!|
|Oh how I want one of these in my backyard|
|My 'Poor Pete' - what a trooper!|
Family and friends felt sorry for 'Poor Pete' being dragged along to another one of my off-beat gardening trips, but he genuinely enjoyed himself - despite the pockets full of water, muddy jeans and boots! I made it up to him by stopping for warm soup and home-made apple pie at this delightful little cafe with the most divine bunches of roses - their smell was intoxicating!
I was quite restrained in my purchases as one hand was always in use holding the umbrella but managed to come away with a selection of treasures.
|Happy as a pig in mud! At the start of the stall - still dry and clean!|
Sadly there will be no fair in 2012 as organisers have decided to pursue other ventures to further promote rare and unusual plants - I'll keep you posted on what form this may take, I'm sure it will be just as exciting!
