Lush and beautiful in London

Our new friend Sophia from Scotland For The Senses did more than send us this beautiful photo of Lord Leighton's former house in London — she sent us a taste of Scotland, a delicious vanilla tablet that we ate in very small pieces! We had nothing like that in Dagenham, that's for sure.
If you have a photo of England you want to share, email us! And look out for our first giveaway, in honor of the Prodigal Birthday.

Thank you for posting my photo! It's only too bad I wasn't able to take photos inside, because the Arab Room is one of the most beautiful spaces I have ever seen.
