An explosion of summer!






Scabious, bupleurum, drumstick alliums, nigella seedheads, ammi majus,  poppy seedheads, mint, stocks and annual gypsophila elegans "Covent Garden".

Abundance. Freshness. Reachtothesky-ness. Drinking in every moment of the midsummer loveliness that an English garden offers.

  1. The most beautiful 'flower-arrangement' I have seen for a wile! Natural, delicate, with a cool feel on a hot summer day.

  2. It takes a very clever 'arranger' to arrange flowers like this. They look so natural and 'unarranged', much nicer than formal bouquets.
