Nice day out at the plant fayre ( never went indoors to the craft part, just forgot).

Came away with 2 rusty iron supports (ooh errr missus!), same guy I've used before.

Got a rudbeckia summering brown and rudbeckia fulgida deanii, to go with the red hot poker and monarda (overcrowding alert!)

Also a dahlia bishop of llandaff ( heard you lot on here talk about it, is is truly  as hardy as the man said?)

And some sempervivums, potted up nicely on the front doorstep.

Then a lovely walk through the gardens, stunning rhododendron.

Might go and take some photos...

Got to agree.

My heart skipped a beat when I got a glimpse at the marquee displays, but they were soon gone. And I have been bored and irritated with the repeat clips. 

And I set off with such enthusiasm to enjoy it all, albeit from my sofa.
