Off to The Smoke










We're off to London Town for the weekend woohoo!  I am really excited, this is the first time we have  been for a couple of years as I just haven't been well enough to tackle it.  I'm not going to go mad, there are only a few things I have planned, we have been there many times so have seen most of the 'tourist' things.  I may have to pop into Liberty though :)  The bearded ones eldest daughter who moved to London a few years ago has just moved to a new flat so we are going up to see her new place.  We have both been incredibly busy at work so are looking forward to a couple of days chilling.  No cooking, no housework and no work.  Plenty of good food and wine, Liberty, Persephone Bookshop and Camden Market .....bliss ......though I always look forward to coming back to my beloved Cornwall.

I will leave you with the last of the photos from Eden.  There are so many fabulous ideas that I would like to use in my garden.


Ideas for the veg patch





Tyres and pipe to divide up the different areas and paths





Beautiful fencing









Some yarn bombing





Tableware



and unusual nests



Well I'm off to make some sarnies for the train, hope you all have a good weekend and welcome to new followers Anna and Melanie.

  8. When I visited London, I couldn't help but filter everything through a pop-culture lens. Clapham Junction! The lights on the Embankment like jewels on chains! Waterloo Station!

    Have fun!

  12. Hi, A weekend in London . . . only in my dreams:) I am delighted to have found your lovely blog. Love the scarecrows. I was just telling my neighbor that I need to give my scarecrow a make over this year :) My husband and I bought a small place in the country last spring. So, last summer was our first garden. I want to learn everything that I can about gardening and making your little place as green and lush as possible. I think that I can learn a lot from you. Please pop over and visit my blog, I would love to have you as a mutual follower.
    I love your blog and I'm very happy to meet you.
    Connie :)
