Two weekends ago me and mum decided to go on a little adventure in town
and head to a museum/gallery we had never been to before. I’m a massive
lover of anything educational and filled with culture…so we ventured south of the river to Lambeth, where we visited to The Garden Museum and I was bowled over by the beautiful display of flowers hanging from the ceiling which is an instillation piece by Rebecca Law. It was like walking into a dream I loved it! When the light came through the stain glass windows the dying flowers were so beautiful, if I was to ever get married (ha! I joke) I would love it to resemble this instillation piece! The Museum itself resides inside the ancient church of St Mary’s and it is the perfect space for such delicate exhibitions.
After we had wandered around the upstairs exhibition we decided to grab some lunch from the lovely cafe within the museum itself, and the food was an absolute dream! Home ground and so lovely we had copious amounts of tea and chatted, as mum treated me to lunch I treated her to a slice of cake, I went with courgette cake and mum went with butternut squash, it was so scrumptious! As it was a crisp cold late morning we wandered around the garden at the back of the church it has a strange scattering of grave stones and delicate flowers (it was a cemetery attached to the church).
I also got money off the exhibition with my Art fund/national pass card which is always nice, the money goes towards the up keep of the church and museum. The Fashion and Garden Exhibition was filled with plenty of gorgeous garments and paintings inspired by gardens, flowers and all things floral.
I will definitely be visiting the museum again and that’s for sure!
