Open Squares 2014




Open Squares weekend takes place every year and is a great chance to see gardens that aren't usually open to the public. Just when you think you know London there are always new places to see and things that you could never imagine were there - isn't that just part of the fun of being a Londoner?
 
Outfit: Dress - Sunday Upmarket, jacket - American Apparel, Sandals - River Island, Floral hairband - Spitalfields Market
My highlights were the beautiful Cadogan Square Gardens which featured a live band and the MaRoCoCo garden on Mount Street which was tiny but beautiful. We tried some raw cacao and a raspberry, black pepper and white chocolate ice lolly was the perfect garden browsing snack!

I'll definitely be back next year for more - I think we saw around 8 gardens but there were so many more that we didn't have time to see. The day ended with seeing Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan in Skylight which was definitely worth staying awake for (clearly not used to fresh air and green space), sadly cannot say the same for England's match afterwards!

Did you visit and Open Square gardens?
