October was a busy month; family visits from Australia and San Francisco, a goal mapping day, baking my first ever cake, cat sitting, making the most of sunny days, straining tinctures and of course lots of art and card making.
While on my staycation back in May, I woke up one morning and decided to head off to the Chelsea Physic Garden.The weather was bright and blue skies perfect for walking around a garden. It is a place that I have wanted to visit for a while but one that I always forget about. Visiting the Garden links well to the AC. The garden was founded in 1673 by the Society of Apothecaries of London, so the apprentices could learn to grow and study plants. The gardens have a long history but has only been open to the public for the last 30 years. It is home to over 3000 plants. While I was there I spotted Black Birds, a Robin, Blue tits, Crows, a Squirrel, Seagulls and Parakeets. I saw a number of butterflies one being a little blue one. I also sat and listened to a little Blue tit singing its song. The layout of of the garden has given me some ideas for the future; I can’t wait to have a garden so we can grow herbs and vegetables. The food in the Tangerine Dream Café was delicious, I had a couscous mix with fig and pomegranate and a courgette and feta cheese salad. It was so yum.
