Fabulous weather at last

English summers are the best when they are like this.   And it seems to be staying like this for a few days yet so let’s enjoy it.

Last weekend I organised the flowers for another wedding – and it was fab thank goodness.   Lots of lovely comments and lots of lovely English country flowers.   Great time for year for the best choice of pretty things.  And the smell of sweet peas filled the place.   The cakes looked good as well!

I really enjoy putting flowers into the Mustard Pot in Chapel Allerton, its a lovely old building with a warm feel and the flowers bring it to life.

Meanwhile back in the garden I’m on pins.   Lots of things are about to open up – the lillies which I love and my present to myself from last year’s Chelsea flower show.   A packet of black double peony poppy seeds.  Now some of them are about 3 feet tall and the flower heads are about to pop.  I could almost sit there and wait but I must do some work worst luck.
