As June is a month of bounty in this respect, I thought I'd post some of the bouquets I made and managed to take a picture of :)
Here is a recent one in a colour combination I'm rather fond of despite the fact that I'm generally not very drawn to getting yellow flowers for my garden.
It's Graham Thomas and the Pilgrim plus the mock-orange and a couple of lavender stems.
I found out that by crushing the wood stem of the mock-orange you can make its vase life considerably longer.
I've got these large cornflower blooms this year that last 7 days or more in the vase.
And they're just starting to show up.
And I've got a whole patch of them :)
I love this combination of sweet peas, scabious and corn flower.
June also means my girl's birthday and she had her first real party this year, so I picked flowers from the garden and made 4 arrangements.
This is one of them, the others I forgot to photograph.
And a natural self-made bouquet as this little rose always comes in perfect bunches
