Old English Roses

Whatever your thoughts on Benjamin Britten, I’m guessing that beauty and scent are probably last on the list.  Gosh that sounds mean, like I’m casting some aspersion on one our greatest composers.

Obviously my reference is purely floral and the photo shows just how beautiful – shame you can’t have scratch ‘n’ sniff.  This lovely rose has a slightly dubious position at the plot, in a ramshackle flower border that contains anything I won’t have in the garden.  Initially I didnt’ like the colour, but in all its glory, the delicate perfume and profilic flowering has made it a definite hit.

Oh and the peashoots behinds the jug have just been devoured in a rather tasty taleggio sandwich.

Country styled wedding BouquetAnd here’s a rather gorgeous country wedding style bouquet.  A huge list of ingredients includes: panicum fountain, sweet peas, ammi, alchemilla, cornflower, hydrangea, astrantia, rosemary, lavender, lemon verbena and sweet avalanche rose.  Simply gorgeous.
