This weekend has just had the best weather ever! My garden is still full of challenges but little areas are slooooowly coming together. ( As in the ground is level and I can start digging out to plant). I decided to take Saturday off and get some plants and inspiration. That so paid off!

I was so rewarded, what an absolute pleasure. First we were at a "plante loppemarked" (plant market) in our area run by the local garden club. It is arranged out at a farm and there are some interresting plants to find at these arrangements. It is wonderful to walk out with trays of flowers for just a few hundred kroners. But I knew I was on my way to another plant sale a little further south. An organic farm called "Rammegaarden" what a stunning place! I cannot describe how wonderful our day was. First there was a fantastic collection of unusual plants, they were having "garden days" so they were selling some interresting things. Here I spent as little money as I could ;) 

Uma and I then decided to go to the main attraction "havlyst" a huge italian/french baroque garden. It costs kr 80 ea. which I though was a lot but what a surprise, we were astounded it was so worth it. The garden runs down a slope towards the ocean. And there are little surprises the whole way down. If you ever have the chance don`t think about it, you will not be disappointed!

This is the first place you come to and here we had a delishes organic lunch which kept me filled for ages!

This is the first surprise you will see once you have entered the park it sort of just pops up as you are making your way through quite wild bush. And I have now decided not to put out all the photos as it will spoil your journey throught this garden, it is rather like spoiling a film or book for someone I think. So the last picture is taken from their site.

This photo is taken from their site (www.rammegaarden.no) as I am not a particularly good photographer. But this is exactly how we experienced it!
