FRIDAY FLOWERS: LONDON PART I
Time to show you some flowers, gardens, a museum dedicated to gardening, and of course, lots of color. I am talking about my trip to London!
I had wanted to go there last summer but it was closed on Monday (oh no…) and the year before it had been closed for an extensive renovation. But finally, my time had come.
The Museum is located just next to Lambeth Palace, home of the Archbishop of Canterbury. In fact, the Museum had been the chapel for the Palace. In the 70’s it was about to be torn down (can you believe it?) for a parking lot. Thanks to many dedicated donors, the church was deconsecrated and renovation began for the Museum.
I love love love their graphics. Really, these are stunning and so perfect for a garden venue of any sort:
(Those little buttons are from the V&A and you will be seeing them again !)
This is the current exhibit: John Brookes.
Highly recommend if you are in the area!
