Flowers in the House
Its a beautiful June day here today, the sun is shining and the garden is full of flowers.
If fact so many I picked a large bunch to bring inside and enjoy and to share with others at Jane's, SmallButCharming for Flowers in the House.
I have a bit of everything here, the Chive flower, blue Campanular, Arum Lily, blue Geranium, Alchemilla Mollis, a few Granny's Bonnet seed heads, Verbascum, white Peony and a Rose......
Not only is this a very beautiful rose it also has the most wonderful fragrance. It's a David Austin rose called 'Constance Spry'. It only flowers in the summer but is well worth growing just for the lovely scent, which Austin describes as having a strong myrrh fragrance, this I can vouch for as this one rose has filled my whole kitchen with a exotic spicy and licorice scent.
