Yesterday was a day for plants and gardens in France and of course the results of the Presidential election.
Many places all over France had big festivals where people came to look at wonderful gardens and where there were lots of plants for sale.
We went to la Roche Jagu which is an old chateau owned by our department, Cote D'Armor.
Although it wasn't too warm or sunny there were thousands of people there looking and buying plants and also walking around the gardens .
La Roche Jagu stands on the edge of an estuary and the views are just wonderful.
The lilacs were out and their perfume and colour added against the blue sky was just so good.
I was delighted to find someone selling one of my favourite plants.
I came away with four of these little darlings.
In the next post I'll show you some photographs of these beauties and tell you more about them.
