You already know that Sheffield Manor is my newest favourite place to visit, and I thought the flower festival it was holding today would be worth dropping in on as they specialise in displays of wild flowers. It was.
The site is a true oasis in the middle of the huge post war social housing estate. It has everything I love - History, gardening, flowers and fab cake.
They also specialise in "green roofs" I love this idea for a garden shed.
According to the lady, they featured this Lavender and Honey cake on The One Show this week. I can vouch that it is very good cake. I'll have to dig out the recipe.
Mary Queen of Scots (whom we imprisoned at one time at Sheffield Manor) put in an appearance.
The displays of wild flowers were gorgeous - I bought a bargain bucket of seeds to grow next year.
There were giant knitted and crochet flowers
I'm glad we went and showed our support.
And the Caribbean Curry from the man with the van was the best curry I have ever tasted!
