THE BOOKMAN VISITS TANGERINE DREAM CAFE AT CHELSEA PHYSIC GARDEN
Some weeks ago I bought from the Village Bookshop at Matakana a copy of the gorgeous:
TANGERINE DREAM CAFE- A YEAR IN CHELSEA PHYSIC GARDEN by Limpet Barron, David Hughes, Sarah Charles Chelsea Physic Garden - NZ$40 -
and decided there and then that we must visit this place while in London. We did and enjoyed both a splendid lunch,including a glass of Pinot Grigio, and a happy hour strolling through the gardens which features over 4000 named plants. I warmly recommend a visit if you are in London. There is a small but interesting bookshop there too. I took loads of photos and four are featured below for your interest.
