I'm not quite sure where June has gone? This morning I was convinced there was still another week of it and then I realised today was the very last day - how did that happen? So squeaking in at the very last moment is my styling the seasons post for June - and I'm so glad I made it because, although I'm not a summer girl, I do love June for one reason - my garden flowers.
June to me means my roses, it means that the mulching and pruning and feeding and spraying is all worth it because the roses come out and the garden is filled with scent and falling blossoms. And it's not just the roses, it's the lavender, it's the hydrangea, the salvia, the thyme, the elderflower and even the chives all making the garden smell amazing.
So this month I decided to lay up a summer table to showcase my favourite flowers from the garden. A simple grey striped cloth, white plates with a posey of flowering herbs on each, antique cutlery, pretty glasses, candles and old bottles filled with flowers. No arranging necessary, just a stem in each one. Easy to do, but beautiful when they're all collected together. The sort of table you want to sit at for a long, lazy summer lunch with friends, drinking prosecco with elderflower, eating good bread, salad and grilled fish and vegetables. Yum. Hopefully I'll get time in July.
