Good afternoon everyone.
We went to see the Roscoea collection of Mr and Mrs Bream, at Stevenshilll in Shropshire. We set off early, went past. the V festival, but early, and I think all the revellers were still in their tents. Mr Bream showed me around personally. I bought some plants from the plant stall, and a few others he found for me from the collection stock. I had to borrow a wheelbarrow to take them to the car.
We spent an hour or so looking around. OH spent some time talking to the oragan grinder (not the monkey).
I'll put the garden photos on "gardens we have visited"
Then to avoid the fall out from the festival , we went to Ashwood nurseries for lunch and another mooch. Since I had already spent quite a bit, I restricted myself to one orchid for the house, one hellebore, and some colchicum bulbs.
Time for tea and more cake I think.
