小编摘要:跟随着Mara Gibbs的脚步,我们回来到英国伦敦的Richmond小镇,参观Francesco和Gael Boglione创建的人间乐园:Petersham Nurseries 与 Petersham House。

导读:在英国伦敦的一个名叫Richmond的小镇上,有一座被作者称为天堂的Petersham Nurseries,那里不仅种植美丽的花草,也随时欢迎度假人士的造访。在那里,你仿佛远离现实世界,尽情享受美味的餐点,在美丽的自然环境中尽情畅游。

Petersham Nurseries is only a 20-minute train ride from the center of London in the lovely town of Richmond upon Thames, but it seems a world away in actuality. Who knew that heaven was waiting for me here on earth? Francesco and Gael Boglione, who created this enchanting escape hatch from reality, have been written about ad nauseum, but in my opinion they are worth every word. Then you ask, why would I want to write more, and if so, what more do you say about a sexy Italian ex-pat and a beautiful Australian gal who planted themselves on the banks of the river Thames to set about cultivating the culinary and botanical scene of Richmond in more ways than one?

I have known Francesco for more than 30 years. Yes, since I was but a mere infant. I first met him at the elegant home of his parents in Turin, Italy where I went to visit his brothers, Marco and Enrico. He was a hippie living and working in India. Francesco was the chicest-looking hippie I had ever encountered. We re-met many years later in London, where from the outside he seemed a changed man, working 9 to 5 in the insurance business. But this was no ordinary insurance salesman, his clients were some of the largest companies in the world.

Francesco was still the epitome of style, and those conservative Italian suits didn't tame his wild side. An invite to his gorgeous apartment on Roland Gardens, a few doors down from Anoushka Hempel's Blakes Hotel, was coveted. He definitely knew how to throw a great party. Therefore, you can only imagine the three-day affair that was given when Francesco married the stunning former model from Australia, Gael. Between the two of them, they knew everybody worth knowing in London and beyond. Greek shipping heirs, members of European royal families along with the likes of Mick Jagger and George Harrison were all in attendance. Francesco and Gael continue to entertain, and they do it with old-fashioned grace and charm in the Bogliones' magnificent home, built in 1624.
