15th Annual Grand Garden and Craft Fair

Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 May 2012

This is the final Grand Garden and Craft Fair at Mount Stewart. Next year there is going to be a new event in its place, the proposed dates being 22nd and 23rd June. No details have been announced yet so what can it be, we all wonder. Very exciting.

Lots of very healthy plants

Great band, we found ourselves swinging along (a bit embarrassing)

On show were Edith, Lady Londonderry’s garden notebooks from the mid 1920s which contain watercolour diagrams of the parterres in the Italian Garden. These show how she intended the colours in her planting to blend and bleed into one another.

A few of us were tempted to go on this but we weren’t allowed. Why should children get all the fun?
