I wondered about sharing more bottle tree pictures then decided a gallery might be pushing my luck. Instead, this is part of a large stained glass window at the Garden Museum in London. I understood it is supposed to represent the first gardeners, Adam and Eve.
The museum is well worth a visit if you’re ever in the area. I loved the stylish old posters on display advertising gardening events from different eras.
The only thing that worries me a little is that Eve appears to be wearing a watch – which makes me think my attribution is flawed, especially as the museum building seems to be in the background. It’s a restored church, St Mary at Lambeth.
One of the first great gardeners, John Tradescant is buried here, so perhaps the stained glass shows him and his wife. If you can shed any light on this, please let me know!
