The vegetable plot has appreciated the warmer weather of June, and the crop of broad beans are growing well with hardly any sign of the pest of black fly. A quick blast of the hose soon puts paid to them! Cut and come again lettuce has been superb and tasty – providing sweet and succulent leaves for us all. The two potatoes varieties (International Kidney and Charlotte) are almost ready and there is nothing to beat home-grown potatoes on the plate.
An early summer wedding using roses, peonies and gypsophila. Absolutely wonderful and a joy to arrange and work with. My local grower provided the alchemilla, bupleurum, apple mint and ammi majus but I used huge amounts of green foliage. The little arrangements at each end of the church pews worked out a treat and looked so pretty.
|I used very tall cocktail vases at the reception and they displayed the blooms to perfection.|
Finally, for this month I had the pleasure of arranging a Golden Anniversary basket of delphinium, phlox, roses, cornflower, peonies, veronica, alchemilla and foliage.
