It’s been a good couple of weeks here. I’ve just come back from a week away with my folks down south. We’ve done nothing but swim in the sea and play in playgrounds. Bliss. More on that soon. Meanwhile, a week before that I popped down to east London for a haircut and had a look around the gardens at the Geffrye Museum. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while after visiting inside the museum earlier this year and this was my first chance to do so. Like the inside, the outside of this museum is separated into different eras so as you walk through, you move through time and see the changes of gardening styles. It’s really quiet too. Even though I turned up on a hot day during the summer holidays and there were lots of people having picnics on the main front lawn, there wasn’t an awful lot of people wandering around the gardens themselves. It’s well worth a visit.

    What a brilliant garden, I love the plaque with the 16th century saying on it and the iron mongers graveyard. I would love that greenhouse, it’s superb. It must have been really lovely to wander through it without crowds of people.
