Flowers at Liberty’s

Utterly good taste, astoundingly lovely flowers cluster round Liberty’s front entrance.

I don’t remember them selling flowers when I worked there in the early 70’s. I just remember learning that you can clean book covers with Windex and lusting after Tuffin and Foale Liberty print dresses.

Such an enchanting meadowIMG_0450

with lupins and peonies and foxgloves... IMG_0452

all in terribly chic shabby chic containers.IMG_0480

There are even late hyacinths

and all these can be made into bouquets by skilled hands.

Claudia and I had a cream tea instead

  1. Didn’t realise that you were in London Elizabeth!
    I love all things Liberty and used to make straight for there in the days when London was always on my Summer school holidays itinerary. Years since I went now, other than passing through on my wayto Heathrow or Gatwick – and not even that for the last few years. The farmer would hate it! Your photographs made me feel nostalgic.

  2. What a gorgeous display! I have yet to visit London – one day! – but when I do, Liberty’s it will be on my list of places to visit.

  3. I have always loved and enjoyed your blog posts.
    And today just shows what I so enjoy about your photos. They just jump out at you and pull you in with their beauty.
    How wonderful you are visiting London and seeing everything I want to.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. London! I’m glad I was redirected to your main blog.
    How I love visiting London. I’ve been to Chelsea Physic Garden twice and honestly recognize every photo you took–the pond, the walkways. Love that place.
