Hello dear friends! Welcome to a special edition of Saturday Smiles Tea and Roses.
The image below is of Annabel’s, a private club in London, currently covered in peonies and roses.
Rare interior shots of the club were recently captured by World Of Interiors and shared HERE.
If by chance a club member reads DTA please know that I am coming to London next summer. What I wouldn’t give to take tea and wash my hands in the prettiest loo in all of London! (smile)
The Summer of Love
The Grand Dame of all garden shows is currently taking place in London, England ~ The Chelsea Flower Show. Queen Elizabeth attended this past Monday as it is one of her favorite events of the social season. Indeed all of London decorates and celebrates this blooming grand event. The theme this year is “Summer Of Love”.
If you are unfamiliar with how designers are selected to create a garden in the show I recommend a charming movie, Dare To Be Wild. It is the true story of Irish landscape designer Mary Reynolds. This unlikely underdog went on an incredible journey to be selected and then present her wild and unconventional style to the esteemed Chelsea Flower Show. I found the film on Netflix. Handsome Prince Albert, aka Tom Hughes, stars as Mary’s love interest.
