Petersham Nurseries

 Just like Itchycoo "it's all too beautiful".
By rights I ought to be launching into an Oscar style acceptance speech at this point...I would like to take this opportunity to thank...
but, in truth I am devoting this entire post to the lovely that is Ludo...
Thank you for taking me to Petersham Nurseries it is just as heavenly as I hoped 
Sorry, I just can't help myself...
I would like to thank the best friends and family anyone could hope for and then find that they are real!
So much to be grateful for, so many kindnesses...lunches, flowers, videos, surprise boxes!
and all of you that took the time to leave me Birthday wishes here...
You're all very Itchycoo too!


If you are interested in reading about or seeing more of the delightful Petersham Nurseries you could check out this and this or this or finally my favourite this as it is so beautifully shot and atmospheric.

Oh, why yes we did eat! It was amazing - we began with rose petal and rose syrup prosecco, followed by Roasted beetroot with goats curd and the most fragrant olive oil infused herb dressing, then on to pan fried scallops, winter tomatoes and leaves with horseraddish cream. We ended on a high with chocolate tart and creme fraiche. Sounds ridiculous but the chocolate was sooooo rich the creme fraiche was heavenly. 


  1. What a lovely post! I would have loved to have gone there...

    A belated Happy Birthday! X
