Bank Holiday Treat ...

Good Morning!
I didn't get the last bank holiday off work so I was really happy that I did get the one on Monday. I spent the day with my parents and treated myself to a few new additions to the garden!

First up is this sweet little Alpine 'Armeria - Nifty Thrifty'. This plant is perfect for Rock Gardens or Alpine displays. It has variegated leaves and and cute little pom pom heads of pink flowers!

Next up is a larger version of a variety of plant that is another part of my Alpine display, Saxifraga. I already have the red and white versions in small Teracotta pots but I'd had my eye on the rose variety for a while and it makes the perfect centrepiece on my patio table.

Lastly is another plant I'd had my eye on for a while. 
This is a Hebe called 'Heartbreaker' and I love it's shock of purple and how vibrant it is. I teamed it with some Helichrysum 'Gold' and Viola's for a display pot.

Here's how my display is currently looking with a few Primroses also included. The Auricula 'Crimson Glow' is slowly starting to bloom and I can't wait until it does so properly.

Thanks for stopping by,
