A Sunday at the Chelsea Physic Garden!

Founded in 1673
Reminds Me of Our Entrance at Home!
An Herb Garden in Boxes
Remembering that We are in London
Hans Sloane, Their Main Benefactor
A Sign on the Education Building
Oh, I Have These and Maybe You Do As Well!
They Have Wonderful Vertical Plant Holders!
Wardian Cases Were Used to Get Plants from Around the Globe!
Was Very Happy to See This Change!
Sunny days don't come too often in London.  So instead of spending time at the V & A Museum, I went to one of my favorite gardens, the Chelsea Physic Garden.  Chock full of history and lots of design and favorite plants, I happily spent the day outside enjoying.  The last photo was especially wonderful, because they had mismarked one of my favorite scented geraniums and called it 'Robert's Lemon Rose'.  I discussed it in this post called Is It 'Robert's or Rober's Lemon Rose' Scented Geranium? a couple of years ago.  So all is well at the Chelsea Physic Garden and if you ever are in London visiting, you must stop by this historic garden.  You won't believe you are in the heart of London.

Rain on its way.  Hot and muggy.  Like a summer day here in the 'Burgh.  Hope you are having a great day.  Talk to you later.

Hot and muggy here too. Only did a small bit of work outside today....there was plenty to do to keep me busy inside :0) Tomorrow is supposed to be slightly cooler so maybe I'll get some more plants in the ground and more weeds out of the ground.

It is a constant battle this year. Waiting for more rain. Maybe over an inch by tomorrow! Going to be soggy! xo
