On the grounds of the beautiful Beervelde estate in Belgium twice a year a large garden event is being held. This estate is located at Lochristi and is a one-hour drive by car from where I live. Every autumn I go there to buy plants. This autumn I went together with a girlfriend.
The weather is nice and the atmosphere is friendly. At this event the Beervelde estate is surrounded by a lot of stands with beautiful plants, bulbs, seeds, tools and antiques.
This year I do not have many items on my list. I thought, I will let me be surprised! A dangerous combination; no plans at all and money in my pocket. That feels like IMPULSE buying coming up! My friend buys many plants, but for me there is nothing in particular to use. Until we reach a stand of terracotta pots ......
I fall in love with a terracotta pot in the shape of a rectangular basket. This Italian pot is handmade in Impruneta (near Florence). Alas, there is an impressive price tag on it!
So we walk along the show. However all the time I am thinking about the basket. In fact I have already decided. Well, if I do not buy too many plants .........
As you might have guessed the basket ended on my garden table and it looks as if it was meant to be there.
I am still fantasizing what to plant in this impulse buy. But can you imagine this basket filled with light blue crocuses?
Buying on impulse. I love it!
Another pot more contemporary style.
Beautiful prairie plants.
Also hot! It says Keep calm end enjoy the fire.
Lunch time. In Belgium gardeners drink champagne!
The weather is lovely.
Look at the colours.
Inspiring garden shed....
....decorated with flowers.
Seeds. What to buy?
On the garden table. I have already planted some crocuses in my pot.
Thanks for hosting
