Cottered day

Lovely day out in Cottered on Sunday. The village had it's annual traditional fair with car boot, vintage cars and fairground rides, candy floss, ice cream, morris dancing, open gardens, cake and jam stalls and teas, of course.
It was the hottest day of the year so far and we were gasping.
We visited the garden of Lower Farm and had tea and cake in the shade of a plum tree.

The garden is beautiful, with lots of secret 'rooms' and sculpture dotted about.
We took refuge from the sun again in the thatched gazebo. Just looking at this amazing table with undersea treasures of shells and fossils displayed under glass cooled me down.
I bought a teapot, a rolling pin and a vintage Christmas biscuit tin. Linda bought a teapot and homemade jams.
