Flowers from my garden

Covent Garden market is celebrating British Flowers Week. Take a look at what's happening on info@cgma.co.uk  Here are some of the things that I've picked from my garden.

The small pale roses are 'Paul's Himalayan Musk' which I grow as a hedge. It gives one outstanding burst of flower and is just coming into it's peak. When it's all over I'll cut it hard back.



The roses and peonies look lovely against the black of my granite kitchen worktop. But they can't stay there all day fighting for space with the washing up!

    1. Thank you, Janneke. But now I've got my eye on the red rose petals with thoughts of rose syrup!

    1. Yes, they are favourite colours of mine as well. I've tried to introduce as much blue as possible but the slugs seem to favour that colour!

    1. It's always nice when you bring flowers into the house and get to see the impact of them close up.

    1. Parts of my garden are pretty down at heel - but I don't point the camera there! This month the flowers are at their most prolific and it's a joy to bring bunches of them into the house and enjoy the perfume.

  5. The flowers are beautiful. I can never get my flowers to look like that no matter how much work I put into my garden. I like the greenery that you have added to the purple plants as it brings a pop of nature to the stunning beauty of the petals. Thank you for sharing this.
