Don't you just love the sweet face of the viola, always turning towards the sun and looking so cheery. I love the way it self seeds and pops up in the most unexpected places.
The gold laced primula is a firm fav of mine, I have it dotted about and the edges seem to glow in the shade.
This snakes head fritillary was put in a few years ago and gets better each year. The checkered petals are such an unusal pattern for a flower.
a little corner that I am still working on, but seems to be coming along nicely, there is always something to do in a garden isn't there.
This one came out of a mixed bag of bulbs bought in a supermarket last autumn.
Today, I headed off to my first plant fair of the year. This one was held at bramall Hall near Stockport. It was such a beautiful setting. the house is very impressive, I didn't have time to go inside, will save that for another time. The plant fair was situated on a lawn to the side of the hall.
Here is a view from the front, amazing timberwork!
One of the plants I bought was this little primula, I just couldn't resist the pretty markings on the petals. It almost looks vintage! It's full name is Primula Polyanthus barnhaven Striped Victorian. Quite a mouthful for a little flower.
