Garden Life

On a beautiful, sunny day, one of those days when you feel happy to be alive, I cycled past Garden Life, at 357 Cleveland Street, Surry Hills, and stopped, drawn by the sight of people sitting at tables outside what was clearly a café. Sadly, they were just closing up and what's more, I'd forgotten my wallet, so I couldn't even buy a cup of tea let alone sample the delicious sounding menu at Café Twig, a newly-opened venture at the back of the shop. Inside Garden Life, a wonderful variety of plants in large pots are displayed in sculptural arrangements; a little garden bathed in bright sunshine leads off the café. It felt like going round to someone's house for tea and discovering they have a perfect little garden.
