Wot no cornflowers?


Pretty peonies

I thought the extra sunshine we've been having would mean our cornflowers would make an appearance this week, but they're still not showing colour yet! The summer flowers have been slow to open this year. A complete contrast from last year where everything seemed to be out, open and over in a couple of weeks! Instead, we've got beautiful peonies and limonium this week. Limonium (or statis) is a great filler flower and holds its colour well as a dried flower too.

What's in the posy?

Peony, limonium, sweet pea, box, currant, astrantia, rosemary, apple mint, sweet william, stock, flowering grass.

What's scented?

Stock, sweet pea, rosemary, apple mint.
