Plants on the Terrace

Fun event this week on my friend, Caroline's terrace. She hosted Terry Tippett of Fleurs de Terry,  who came and set up lots of perennials for us to 'ooh' and 'aah' over...and purchase, of course. Not only were the plants lovely, but Terry was a wealth of information which she was only too happy to share. My unique needs didn't phase her a bit. I needed plants that would grow in pots, take shade for most of the day except for a few hours in the afternoon when they would be exposed to the hot sun. I picked out several before succumbing to Caroline's tasty treats...orange drizzle bread and carrot cake accompanied by a nice cup of English tea. Delightful afternoon!

This morning I had my work cut out for me, but all my lovely plants are now potted, watered and soaking up the warm April afternoon sun on my terrace.
