Petersham Nurseries

 It is increasingly difficult to avoid the dining tables and the tea tables at Petersham Nurseries and while I appreciate that a lot of people go there to eat and drink that does not interest me. I like the flowers and the touches of industry used to produce them for sale.

 A plus side of the tea and cake crowd is that the place is kept tidy and pretty and these potted flowers are a good advertisement for what flowers in pots can do.

One greenhouse is still being used for the purpose for which it was built and new plants are being carefully nurtured for their future life elsewhere.

This is the last stage in most plants' journeys through the nurseries as they show off their beauty to the prospective buyers walking past.
