In A Puddle At Petersham Nurseries

Today was wet, wet, wet. We decided to visit Petersham Nurseries in Richmond, South London ... (it's warm ... and it's mostly inside, isn't it?). No. No. No!!

It's Dry Inside!
It's Wet Outside!
Me In My Silly Sandals!
Luckily The Plants Were Beautiful
They Even Looked Good In The Rain
Though We Soon Scurried Out Of The Rain
Into The Greenhouses
Shall We Have A Coffee?
Yes Please!
And Some Cake?
Definitely! ... Chocolate Rum And Nut Torte ... Skye Gyngell Is A Food Wizard!
Lots Of Goodies In The Shop
Trendy Stock
Even More Trendy Stock
Out Again Into The Rain
Say Goodbye To The Cows In The Field Outside

Petersham Nurseries is really a delightful place to visit. It has a wonderful array of plants and gardening equipment ... and best of all a cafe and tea house with sumptuous cakes and pastries ... and a wonderful restaurant too. The restaurant is so busy at lunchtime that it must be booked at least a month in advance, but is said to be one of the best places to eat in this area of South London, and the chef (Skye Gyngell), is praised by all and sundry. Do pay a visit if you are in the area. Take your wellies with you!


  1. Looks like a great place to visit...too bad it's sooo far away!
