From my June Garden
I can’t believe I’m half way through this ‘From my Garden’ project! – but here is the sixth one.
Two ‘Buff Beauty’ roses from the back garden, which have apricot coloured buds and gradually open to a parchment colour – it is a huge straggly bush which is rather overshadowed by a black bamboo, but still beautiful, with a wonderful scent. And one white ‘Madame Alfred Carriere’ from the climbing rose which goes up the front of my house, a lovely old fashioned white rose, again with a wonderful scent.
They are in a little Emma Bridgewater spotted jug. I have just been reading her memoir, ‘Toast & Marmalade: stories from the kitchen dresser’, which was published last year. If you want a light cosy summer read I would recommend it. The story of how her pottery business came into being is quite astonishing and it is really funny in lots of places!
Happy weekend 🙂
