My New Favorite in London, Liberty's!

An Unexpected Look for a Department Store!
Toasted Tea Cake at Cafe Liberty!
Old and New in the Liberty's Interior!

Somehow no matter how many times I have been to London, I can always find something new to explore!  My best friend, Mar, wanted me to buy her some fabric for quilting and she has always loved Liberty's.  Always loving architecture and married to an architect, it was a no brainer for me to fall in love with Liberty's as well.  I'll add an interior photo by my English herbal companion, Gloria as soon as I can.  Couldn't get a scone for our morning break, but we did have a toasted tea cake at Cafe Liberty that was for me like a toasted hamburger bun with fruit.  Not quite like a scone at afternoon tea, but still delicious.  I got quite used to morning or afternoon tea breaks.  So European and English!

Spring is a cool one this year!  We were in the 30's last night! Goes with the very cold winter we had.  Unfortunately the four-lined plant bug is back already!  Out looking in the herb garden this morning and I have quite a few holes to fill.  Yippee!  Bonnie and I are going to Ohio tomorrow to try and fill up the empty spots.  Also waiting for a box to come from one of my favorite herb farms in New Jersey, Well-Sweep.  Think I'm going to like my lemon themed gardens this year.  I also remembered a lemony herb that I lost this year named sorrel.  It loves this time of year.  Very easy to start from seed, but I'll be on the lookout for it in my travels to purchase herbs.  Thought I had weeded pretty well before I left, but the weeds can get the best of any garden in a hurry.  Hopefully, it will warm up in the coming days and make it nice to work outside.  Hope you are having a great day wherever you may be.  Talk to you later.
