Yesterday I visited Parham House and Gardens in West Sussex which is about 35 minutes drive from my home.
The weather was lovely and we had a picnic in the grounds surrounded by the beautiful south downs.
 The gardens were so pretty, especially the cut flower garden and the wide flower borders and in the grounds was the longest greenhouse I have ever seen. It took ages to walk from one end to the other and it was packed full of flowering plants, some in pots, all cascading together. There was also tomato plants and courgette plants growing up the walls amongst the flowers!
It was heaven! 
 I bought bunches of statice from the garden shop which I carried around the gardens with me and there were so many bees, hoverflies and butterflies.
We ended the day in the teashop with homemade cake. What a perfect day!!
