Geffrye Museum

In London today to see my daughter's final degree show which has been transported to The Rochelle School in Shoreditch, not far from Brick Lane.It was unbelievably hot but found sanctuary in the gardens and the reading room at the Geffrye Museum ( It is a Museum which specialises in middle class interiors and at the moment has an exhibition called " A Garden within Doors; Flowers and Gardens in the Home" which was delightful. It runs till 25th July.
