Gosh it’s been a while since I did one of these! But let’s not dwell on that. It’s going to be wet this weekend (and maybe for Chelsea – nooo!) so here are some distractions.
We were in Camber Sands over the weekend for the All Tomorrow’s Parties music festival and I couldn’t resist a quick trip to Dungeness to see Derek Jarman’s famous Prospect Cottage. The Dungeness landscape was more than a bit bewildering for us festival weary folk and the wind was blowing a (freezing!) gale so we spent most of our trip crawling around in the car – mouths agape – only to get out to take a few iphone snaps of this lovely place.
I will be going back in the warmer months for sure.
We saw this unusual, dome greenhouse at a NGS open evening a couple of weeks ago in London. The main drawcard of the Clapham garden at this time of year is a sea of 1,500 tulips, but the late spring meant that they were not yet in bloom (it is open again this week for tulip viewing). The visit was not wasted as we were able to admire this lovely greenhouse. Steve took these images on his iphone.
