On Sunday (Mothering Sunday) we visited the Gardens Illustrated Garden Festival held at Westonbirt School, Tebury, Gloucestershire.

You can read about its history along with details regarding visiting the garden on the website: Holford Trust

It was a beautiful spring day, the marquee on the lawn housed some interesting plant and garden related stalls.   I bought Chocolate and Flowers.

We had previously visited the gardens in the summer of 2015, these pictures are from then.

 

Chocolate & Flowers in the greenhouse.

I am looking forward to seeing and smelling these!
