My husband and I had just arrived in London early one morning last August, our destination Wales. Stepping off the plane, jet-lagged no doubt, we found ourselves here, just across the street from our hotel.
Coincidentally, it happened to be the 20th anniversary of the dear Princess Diana's death, an event that crushed me along with the rest of the world. I found it a very healing and comforting gift to be here. Along with a billions of other photos I took in the garden, I came upon Lady's Mantle, one of my favorite plants, at the entrance to her Memorial Fountain https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diana,_Princess_of_Wales_Memorial_Fountain
The next day was spent inside the V&A Museum and I stumbled upon this fabulous artifact. I have an extensive background in herbal medicine (a 2001 graduate of David Winston's Center for Herbal Studies) which made this gem an extra special surprise. And look what page it happened to be opened to...
A very special treat indeed!
One of my favorite places to hang out!
