L'Abbaye Nouvelle (the new abbey, although it dates from the 13th century) between Sarlat and Gourdon, is the most beautiful venue imaginable in which to hold a garden/plant fete. It's also the biggest of the local plant fairs with a fifty plus nurserys and horticulteurs from all over France.
The sun shone last Sunday.
Les Senteurs du Quercy, specialists in plants for dry places plus holding an enormous collection of Iris, were doing a brisk trade. I've bought on-line from them previously, the plants always arrive swiftly and in excellent condition. I say this not in receipt for anything from them, just simply because they're passionate about what they do.
A very pleasant way to spend a weekend, there are a few more plant fairs scheduled until the end of June and then again in the Autumn, beginning in early October.
