Nestled in the Ribble Valley lies a beautiful garden...

So, to totally go off a tee to my normal bloggings, here's one for the green fingered (or cake lovers like myself!). For anyone wondering what to do with their Sunday afternoon, there's a lovely Open Garden Event in Lancashire which is raising money for Perennial, the Gardener's Royal Benevolent Society.

As well as a brilliant range of planted areas to wander around, it's a working garden so you'll get to see the ins and outs of life there, including the field turned into a Vegetable Garden! I had a peek there this week and the Veg has grown so much you'd think they were feeding the 5,000! There's also the yummiest of yummy scones, cakes and cups of tea (yes, I've sampled a few so can definitely vouch that they're droolable!), along with some gorgeous plant stalls to browse, and a Plant Wizard (aka. Peter Foley) there to answer any plant or gardening questions you may have! I'll also be setting up a little stall there with some of my takings going to Perennial, so plenty to keep you busy for the afternoon!

So treat yourself to a day out on Sunday, and spread a little Charity love...especially with those cream scones awaiting you! More details can be found on the Perennial website here.
