Parham garden weekend

I took Mum and Dad to Parham garden weekend today. The weather was absolutely glorious. It is a small stately home nearby, with gorgeous gardens. Today the garden was full of nurseries selling their plants. It was so colourful! This is Mum and Dad standing with some of our purchases.

This is a general picture, and my friend Sarah and her mum are in the back! This was a lovely stand. I particularly liked the yellow kniphofia with the red crocosmia.

And here's what I bought! A reddy ornage echinacea, a really bright orange helenium, a yellow kniphofia and 2 ferns that will grow in my (very) dry shade. I bought Mum and Dad an echinacea too as it is their wedding anniversary tomorrow. (51 years!)
