loving all the dahlias out at the moment – bought these in Garnetts Gardens, that not only sells plants, but freshly cut flowers, local cakes and produce! i discovered this on my way home from suffolk the other day – its always good to divert to another route – opens your eyes to new things! my favourite nursery in the area though is Darsham Nurseries – lovely food and small gifts to buy, plus inspiring planting and vegetable patches to view, plus its just seconds away from the train station that brings you in from london.
robert and I took a walk in hampstead recently, enjoying the last of the sunshine – the dahlias there outside kenwood house are just amazing! drop in and see inside the house – its free entry and you will marvel at the wonderful collection of paintings, by Gainsborough, Rembrandt, Vermeer and Reynolds, all in this beautiful setting. there is also a cute second hand bookshop thats worth popping into, right by the cafe seating area.
