August in the shop and garden…

Lately we have been collecting flowers to dry, sea lavender, Allium heads, Nigella and Marjoram to create pretty rings of flowers to hang for indoor decoration.  
A quick re-shuffle on the shop stand filled with aromatic herb candles, new and vintage glassware and succulents planted in vintage galvanised wash bowls.
Upstairs in the shop, a new selection of vintage French linen and flax table runners. 
Lots of old preserving jars which are perfect for homemade pickling and jams. 
American vintage crates and Amish barn stars.

And a recent addition upstairs is a lovely cast iron table base finished with pine boards reclaimed from the Wedgewood factory seen with an old Lloyd Loom chair and an enamel pail with a lilac Hydrangea.
And more pictures of the Gardener’s Home, my Dahlias are now bursting with blooms.
Pots full of blue Agapanthus.

The lower border is changing colour with more Dahlias, Lythrum and Eupatorium.

A pretty little clematis which is very happy scrambling through a Viburnum shrub.
