'Petersham Nurseries', a green oasis outside London

Philippa Davenport writes eloquently in last week-end's Financial Times about Petersham Nurseries a green oasis Petersham located in Richmond, a few miles outside the center of London along the Thames river. They sell assorted antiques and garden artefacts and books. In the middle of all this is a Cafe that serves a limited menu based on fresh and seasonal products. One thing that I especially liked is that they list their 40 or so food sources alongside the menu.
They also hold special events and classes.
It all sounds like the perfect place to escape the city noise and buzyness if you are in London.

'New York Aquarium' offers online Ticket purchases

Apr 20
Planning a day trip tomorrow to the New York Aquarium, I was pleased to find out that they now offer the option of buying tickets online. It sure beats waiting in a possibly long line as some kids are on Easter vacation. The Plan a Visit section of their site is very helpful and well designed. I hope the visit is as good as their online presence.
