Come see one of my most favorite places. The Burford Garden Centre
It’s a garden centre, a cafe with the yummiest lunches, a gourmet foods shop, a home decorating centre, a children’s fantasy shop, a speciality book store and an antiques shop all in one.
If you’re an avid plants woman/man, want a lovely place for lunch with friends, need that truffle oil from France for tonight’s risotto, want to buy a three tiered tutu in bright fuchsia for your little princess this is the greatest place to spend some time.
All the displays are so lovely to look at and dream about.
Look at this one.
These cast iron twine spools…I mean…you have to have twine in the garden, right?
This is a fruit store for all the apples from your orchard.
The roses are actually grown so you can see their habit before you decide on the perfect one.
How about this! A Gypsy caravan as a play house/place to nap/have tea.
Wow, locally grown and hand spun linen goods. Who does that these days? I want to spin and weave linens.
Loads of vintage plates/cups/jugs…anything you like, for a song. I love to mix and match, don’t you?
Can you believe the patina of this table and benches? This would be so wonderful in a breakfast room.
And, of course, a fair amount of that beautiful English Laura Ashley type layering. Very Shabby Chic.
Can’t wait to go back.
