Roses in December (nearly)

The visibility outside today is about 10 feet. It’s misty and grey, Winter’s arrived very suddenly, and I just found these photos I took at the Geffrye Museum garden in July. They remind me of sunshine, flowers, and the best garden in London to eat your lunch.

The garden doesn’t open again until April (it shuts in October) but as soon as it does, I’ll be down there looking for the first signs of spring.

But don’t wait until then to visit the museum, which has 11 rooms showing furniture and objects from different historical eras. At Christmas they deck out each room with the appropriate period decorations and it’s lovely. One of my favourite places in London.

    LOVE the Geffrye museum. So glad you did a post about it – I’m always worried if more people don’t go, it will disappear.

    I’ve never heard of this place and it looks so wonderful. Those flower photos are amazing. I miss summer… x
