RHS Garden Rosemoor !


Do join me in a lovely walk around my garden...LOL..I wish!!

Today, we went to RHS Garden Rosemoor.





I loved this small greenhouse which houses these

beautiful alpines and succulents.



Come with me...



Here, above, is my favourite ' snap of the day!'



Spot the bee going about its business...or buzziness!



A host of Hostas!



Come on, keep up with us ! ;-)




Mr S...somewhat worse the wear after a few drinks in Exeter yesterday!

Nuff said about that!

LOL ;-)

He hasn't gone far since we last visited, has he?!



Fans... and fabulous Sunflowers!





We always walk to Lady Anne's house .



Lady Anne gave the Rosemoor estate to the RHS in 1988.

If you wish to read more about her...here's the history :

And if you come to Devon, the visit to Rosemoor is a must!

These gardens are stunning!





We always end up at the plant centre,where I noticed a little bit

of vintage creeping in.



What a fabulous day!



That wasn't quite all of it, though!

Devon County Antiques had a little show going on in the marquee.



Donna was there with her lovely mum and fab fabrics.



And there was a selection of further vintage goodies on offer.



Plus a small display of vintage machinery



All in all a lovely day and the weather was kind to us too!

Hope your weekend was a good one!

;-)

It looks like a good time was had by all! I love Rosemoor, and have been going there for years, even before the RHS was gifted the land on which to lay out their show garden. How lovely that there was the vintage fair, too!

Lovely pictures. I love the Pot Men :) I think I'll have to make one for my garden.

Thank you for the garden tour Sal. The vintage fair was a real plus. You were lucky with the weather, showers on and off all day here.

Looks like a wonderful place to visit, Sal, I would have loved a look at the vintage machinery too.

I love Rosemoor too but haven't managed to visit for a couple of years so thank you for sharing your lovely photos. Lady Anne's house is beautiful too. I can't think of anything better than a trip to Rosemoor with the added bonus of being able to browse some vintage goodies.
