It seems we’ve had the perfect mix of sunshine filled days and rainy nights, the gardens really seem to be coming in to their summer flourish these past few weeks.
Our own is a wonderful mix of wildflowers, home sown and garden centre bought, which blend together to make a wonderfully vibrant place for me to enjoy and by enjoy I mean somewhere to hang the laundry!
The mix of colours, textures and scents are a real treat and make all the effort, expense and snail hunting worth it!
My white hydrangea has turned a wonderful variety of different shades; blues, whites and pinks mingle with purple and a vintage blush.
Spiderman has been enlisted to help protect against snails.
The dahlia is blooming in all it’s glory. I’ve enjoyed seeing the big fat buds open and transform in to gorgeous multi petal flowers.
As much as I love seeing the flowers in the garden, I can’t help but bring them indoors, wildflowers are a particular favourite. My little darling Ahren picked these for me, aren’t they lovely.
I’m always delighted by the variety of wildflowers which grow down on and by the beach.
I’ve been wanting to preserve some of the petals, so I made a flower/petal press, take a peek if you fancy having a go!
I’m all out of sorts with blogging at the moment, so apologies for this rather haphazard post!
