Thank you mum...


Ball chrysanthemums

Most of this week's ingredients come from Surrey, which means mum grew them, so thank you mum. There's also big bloomer sunflowers and the first of the yellow ball chrysanthemums from Lincolnshire. As we rattle towards the tail end of summer, the flower colours just get brighter. This week I've gone for the colour wheel contrast of yellows and purples, representing boldness and confidence.

What's in the posy?

Chrysanthemum, sunflower, salvia, clary sage, black-eyed susan, weigela, choisya, salal, rosemary, jasmine, heather.

What's fragrant?

Jasmine and rosemary.
