Saturday walkabout

October 26th, 2008

After days of intense sitting in front of computers, Andrew and I decided to have a day out in the outside world. We had a huge fry up brunch, went to Petersham Nurseries, had tea and walked around Richmond Park. Petersham Nurseries is probably the world’s most stylish garden center. They sell a wide variety of plants, tools, antiques and lots of items that I would describe as “shabby-chic” like rusty chairs, battered pots and broken bicycles. It’s all very nicely done though, beautifully displayed and they have a cafe and restaurant too. I’m so not a gardener, but it’s a lovely place!

    This looks like just about the best Saturday ever! Photo strolls with your boy on one arm and camera on the other are the best way to spend a day off, in my opinion :) And I love, love, love the shot with the framed Hindu gods– those blues on the walls and in the art just pop so good.

  9. I love the one with the flowers in the water, although they are all beautiful, that one in particular just tugs on me. Do you think you might offer any of these in your etsy shop? All of these would be amazing as a series.

    Your photos are absolutely beautiful! I love Petersham Nurseries. It’s really near where I work, but I’ve only been there for lunch once. If only it weren’t so expensive, I’d be there a lot more.
