Medway Plant Fair

Hi there!  I hope you're all having a lovely weekend.  The weather here in Kent was gorgeous yesterday and we took advantage of the sunshine by visiting the Medway Plant Fair in Rainham.  We went on a family outing with Hubby's parents to have a wander around the small fair where local nurseries were selling their wares.  The beautiful plants were lovely in their displays.

While MIL and I were looking at the displays Freya was dragging her Gramps around everywhere and loving the freedom (well, she was on her reins but she doesn't mind them, especially seeing as the alternative is being sat in her buggy!)

We did buy a few plants but I haven't photographed them yet.  We spent the rest of the afternoon yesterday trying to tidy up our garden, which was in a bit of a state!!  The wind had blown the bamboo screening down so it was only being held on by a few screws and we needed to trim the grass that was a foot long in places!!  Hubby had re-seeded the lawn as there were many patches that had been churned up by the dogs but of course the grass that was already there continued to grow while we kept off the rest!!  I really wish I'd taken "before" photos yesterday to show you just how much we'd accomplished.

The plan today is for me to plant my new plants and those that have been sitting in my little greenhouse for a while.  I'll take some photos and will come back and update you on my progress!

In the meantime, have a wonderful weekend - I hope the sun's shining where you are.



  1. Hi Doris!
    You and your family had a lovely day, no?
    Oh how I and my girls yearn to go to England!
    Don't be surprised if we do just that someday, and we show up on your doorstep ;)!
    I love seeing life there through your eyes and heart!
    I have made a sweet blog friend named Doda who lives in Scotland and she said we are welcome anytime :)
    Wish it were as simple and inexpensive as that :)
    The sun is shining here, finally and I did have a great weekend, and am happy to see that you did too!
    Blessings to you as you make your home!
