Summer overflows

Writing a blog is a strange experience, I thought my next post would be about my wonderful time in Paris but instead I find myself irresistibly  tempted to share photographs of my roses with you!



My holiday was so filled with beautiful images and moments of enjoyment and fun that I need a little time to 'let things settle', otherwise you will be treated to an indigestible muddle of my enthusiastic anecdotes and a manic collection of deeply dull holiday snaps!
In just the few days I've been away, my roses have blossomed and my favourite seat is half hidden by a tide of flowers


 I have just spent the happiest of hours picking great bunches of roses, geranium and honeysuckle


I now have posies in my bedroom


and a beautiful jugful, glowing in the sunshine on my dining room table


Home-coming is sweet

  1. I like your bouquets of posies from your gardens. It must be a joy to sit out there, I see a table and chairs. Just post holiday photos as the mood strikes you.

    1. Thank you. I quite like the thought of spending a little time and remembering the holiday's special moments and trying to re-capture them. I am very lucky with my garden, I can find magic there all year round.

  6. Your garden is just beautiful - romantic, wild and free. I can't bear over tended garden and yours looks perfect. My garden is struggling with aphid, ant, slug and snail armies - it is war! Any advice?! Look forward to seeing pictures of Paris. I wonder - did you visit Shakespeare and Company by any chance?

    1. Hello Bridget, I'm glad you like my wild garden. I too have problems with snails and slugs and find that tough, cottage garden flowers tend to survive better. I didn't make it to Shakespeare and Co this trip but it is a wonderful boo shop! Jane xx

  7. I'm incredibly envious of your roses! it is my dream to have loads of roses like that but not a hope ..... and I wish I had loads to cut too so I could have them inside the house. Our first house had loads of rose bushes in the garden and I have never forgotten how lovely it was.
