The children will be back at Uni towards the end of the week and so the day started with having a leisurely cooked breakfast at our favourite cafe in Weymouth, before we went our separate ways - the children were working and we were off to one of our favourite charity plant sales.
We have a number of charity plant sales held in Dorset at this time of the year. They are held in the grounds of old manor houses which have beautiful gardens, that you can also wander around .There are usually up to 20 local plant sellers many selling unusual plants. It is like being a child in a sweet shop and of course we couldn't resist! The sale today was at Mapperton House, originally built in the 16th century with additions added over the centuries.
The gardens are below the house in a valley, the first pool is a swimming pool what surroundings to swim in!
loved this stall I could have bought the lot if only I wasn't de-cluttering.......
These amazing sculptures were also for sale and have been made out of wire aren't they beautiful?
As you may have noticed I have been making a few changes to my blog these are :-
A new banner.
New tabs at the top of the page.
All the sites I am now following are listed on the front page.
A new button down the side if you wish I will automatically notify you of new posts by email .
Some viewers were having problems leaving comments and hopefully this has now been rectified.
Thanks again for visiting me, I hope you like the changes and that you managed to relax sometime over the weekend too.
