I haven't mentioned that our Eleanor Elizabeth accompanied us to Chelsea Physic Garden. She enjoyed the garden immensely.
Especially the Edible Plants area.

There were all the usual normal every day plants in the edible garden. Tomatoes. Green Beans. Onions. Garlic. Rhubarb. Carrots.


No, Bunny! They're for LOOKING AT, NOT EATING!

Eleanor thought that maybe she could nibble her way through this really large humongous green monster leaf.

Even a Bunny couldn't eat a whole GIANT leaf. It might work better as a papa san chair.

Oooooh! Pretty flowers to chew on!

Ummm, no. Not so tasty.

This is more like it! Red Clover!

After our discovery walk through the Edible Plant Garden, Eleanor wanted to visit the Gift Shop where she had seen a quite handsome bear on a display table.

The Gift Shop! What a delightful place! Everything a gardener could want, need or imagine!

Even this sweet little Terracotta Pot Man

I loved the cotton shades!

The docents at the shop recommended Jekka's Complete Herb Book as the best resource available. It was a tempting purchase, but I decided against buying it. We had traveled to London from Los Angeles with only our backpacks and I didn't want to carry the weight back home.

I hope you have enjoyed our visits to Chelsea Physic Garden. If you ever have the opportunity to travel to London and decide to go to the garden, it would be wise to check the website for visiting hours.

That terracotta pot man is very cool. I enjoyed seeing the garden with Eleanor Elizabeth!! Hope your rest and relaxation tomorrow helps you to heal...

Kak Willow, I think I will be very happy at that garden shop, even Eleanor got a new teddy boyfriend, how cute :D

Cute pictures, I truly love this post! I would love to see that garden, and they'd better keep me away from that gift shop!!

You and Eleanor Elizabeth have really "whetted my appetite" for a visit to Chelsea Physic Garden next time I go across the pond to visit my son and DIL. It's going at the top of the list of places to see. Thanks Willow!

Elanor Elizabeth is such an intriguing traveler!

I keep seeing things that look like terracotta bee hives set alongside those garden paths. What are they?

Those are great pictures! I love edible gardens (mmm...). I'm also going to have to keep an eye out for that book. My girls have developed quite a lot of excitement about having their own garden this year, and herbs are a big part of their plan!

I am intrigued with the fact that you only carried a backpack from L.A. to London. I haven't been able to reduce my luggage to that when I travel to Europe. What do you pack?

What a fun post! That is one well behaved bunny ~ I hope she has other experiences to share this year!

I love those watering cans. There was something very Mr Mcgregor's garden with Eleanor Elizabeth munching the leaves. :-) It looked like she had a marvellous time. I expect you can get Jekka's Herb book on Amazon

I want a pink watering can! :) Your blog is so charming--I'm glad I found you!
