Yesterday we went to Chateau Neuvic plant sale. Buying plants in spring is a great treat and when you get to buy them in such grand surroundings - even better!
Some of the stalls were in the courtyard of the chateau....
... others in the chateau gardens..
These succulents caught my eye..
... as did these cactus
Best of all were the herbs - we bought some oregano and some (more) mint - menthe de cerf which is narrow-leaved and smells just like after eight mints..
These arum lillies were amazing.... but you need a special kind of garden for these, I think..
Lots of lovely foxgloves...
And aren't these delphiniums the most beautiful blue...
Then we came home and planted everything we'd bought - just before a heavy shower - the first rain for weeks!
