Queen’s Green Canopy tree planted at Farleys House and Gallery
On a glorious day in March, Deputy Lieutenant Graham Peters attended a Queen’s Green Canopy tree planting at Farleys House & Gallery, home of surrealists Lee Miller & Roland Penrose near Chiddingly.
The tree planted in celebration of HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year was a malus sylvestris, a native apple. The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a nationwide initiative encouraging everyone to #plantatreeforthejubilee and is being coordinated in East Sussex by Action in rural Sussex.
Farleys House and Gallery Ltd is a historic artist’s house where the fashion model, surrealist artist and combat photographer Lee Miller lived with her husband Roland Penrose, himself a surrealist artist, biographer and curator of Picasso, Ernst, Miró, and Tàpies. It houses the Lee Miller Archives and the Penrose Collection. The house is open to the public two days/week: http://ow.ly/aFgv50Iq3q3
