Enchanted Garden of my Childhood

Today I have been reliving my childhood with my own little girl in my Grandmother, Judy’s garden. Being with Isla makes me see places with different, less adult eyes and especially being in Granny Judy’s magical garden on this English Summer’s day, where I spent so much time as a child, I have been feeling mega nostalgic!

Those tea roses (I think) on the right smell delicately & sweetly fragranced. There’s something about an English Summer’s day that is so special. Perhaps because they’re rare? The quality of the light is different, the sounds and the grass scented air make it so different to a hot day elsewhere. Or maybe it’s just the fact that I associate it with my childhood? It’s 10pm now and it’s only just getting dark. Today was a day for savouring.

Shepherd’s Delight

‘Shepherd’s Delight’ with soft pink & peach tones of Apple Blossom, Roses, Astilbe, Night Scented Stocks, Rosemary, Myrtle berries & Italian Ranunculus

Inspired by the beautiful Summer sunsets I’ve been enjoying over the last couple of weeks in The Philippines and now the gorgeous explosions of blossom on the streets back at home. I love these soft ballet pink and peach tones and associate them with my little girl Isla who was born at this time of year when the London streets were abundant with frothy cherry blossom & Magnolia. The Night Scented Stocks, Rosemary and Myrtle berries make this delicate combination of flowers smell incredible!

Blue Skies & Scents of Spring

image

Spring air smells and sounds so different to winter and each year I seem to forget, until it arrives again. After Winter’s dormancy, birds are training up their vocal chords and you can smell the brand new growth. Magnolia buds, Cherry Blossom, Daffodils, Hyacinths, all play a part in that sweet Spring air and then there’s one of my absolute favourites – Daphne. It’s the tiniest of flowers which could easily go unnoticed if it wasn’t for its mighty punch of fragrance that wafts along pavements with no obvious sign of where it’s coming from. Spring is clearly a time of year to take stock, and a long deep breath every now and then. Definitely food for the soul!
