Daglan Spring Festival – Part one

Daglan hosted its second spring festival yesterday (19th March) and it was a brilliant success. Paul and I had a wonderful day looking at the array of plants which lined the square, around the church and down the main road. There was so much to choose from that we must have walked around the displays at least four times before deciding what to buy.

This is why I need to split our blog into two. The plants will be in our second blog but first was the very moving ceremony at the side of our local church.
