I’ve been using our gorgeous dark red peonies (Inspecteur Lavergne) in some gift bouquets going out today. The peonies smell absolutely amazing..
For Mother’s Day last weekend, here in East Sussex, we picked tulips, scented narcissi, flowering currant, tonnes of anemones, rosemary, plum blossom, hornbeam and other foraged foliage. They all went into our mixed buckets for local delivery or were made into bouquets and jam jar posies for collection and local shops.
We pick flowers constantly from April to October so if you’d like some just contact us.
So happy to have played a small part in the Gold Medal that the first Flowers from the Farm exhibit at Chelsea produced. We were but one grower that contributed our flowers but still somehow makes the work all seem worthwhile. A million and nine thanks to whoever’s idea it was and everybody else involved in the design and logistics in getting it all together.
Anyone who used to follow me in the days of The London Daily Nature Photo ( http://www.nichamilton.com/ldnp/index.php?x=browse ) will, I’m sure, remember my love of dragonflies. thus it’s nice to see an old love with a new one as a Southern Hawker sits on a Sugar Diamond here.
