Magnolia flower Collette Dinnigan

Summer is almost here, and the tall foxgloves, delphiniums and bushes of lavender are starting to bloom. I cannot begin to tell you how much time I spend in the garden planting flowers. I have grown so many different varieties of sweet-smelling fragrant roses. Over the years I’ve somehow managed to gather so many different vases and I love putting roses all through the house, small bunches of wild roses especially. Hydrangeas also look good and light up a simple table or dark corner of a room and the best thing is that home grown cut flowers last a long time.

Pictured here is the most beautiful flower from the ancient Magnolia Grandiflora in our garden.
