Flowers, tea and sunshine!

On Saturday Maria's mum, Lone (pronounced "Luna"), and I had a lovely afternoon at Petersham Nurseries in Richmond. Lone was visiting from Denmark for the weekend. Maria was teaching an all day sourdough course which meant Lone and I had a mother-daughter day.

Richmond, at just over 8 miles from central London, is a 30 minute train ride away. Then a short bus ride through Richmond to Petersham Street. The Nursery is down the adjacent unmarked alley. Good thing Lone knew the way!

We wandered the shop, peered in on the diners at the Michelin star restaurant, then ate our Teahouse lunch outdoors before purchasing some plants.

Entrance to the Restaurant complete with dirt floor.

Sunshine, flowers, tea and lunch!
Beautiful arrangement in the shop

Scented Geraniums' leaves really do smell like orange fizz!

Wellies for sale

Even the loos have lovely flowers!

Inspired by the day, I'm starting my own English garden on my bedroom windowsill. Plant #1.
