RAIN RAIN GO AWAY ! The willow is sporting a new haircut ! Trying to keep some control when everything else is going a little crazy ! The hedges need cutting but not in this heat ! No our lawn has not been watered ! We live on a swamp ! We pumped out 3x a week the entire winter and you literally could not stand on the lawn until about 8 weeks ago as it was so waterlogged it moved and sported a black algae bloom ! No meals under the tree today as it’s pretty wet out there ! .

BEAM ME UP - to this beautiful terrace for breakfast ! Spoiled by weeks of sun from dawn until dusk and able to take all meals outside this mornings wet has come as a shock ! Already the plants are looking happier but breakfast in is not my preferred choice ! Fabulously comfortable wicker chairs / cool shade and an inspirational tree canopy courtesy of Elle Decor would suit me perfectly ! Have a great week wherever you are xx .

FIR THE LOVE of BLUE - Petunias and Pansies outside The Summerhouse ! Love trying different colour combinations and this year the additional planting as you look down the garden is blue - calming in the heat and loving all these different tones working together - watering feeding and deadheading daily but I’m determined to keep everything going as long as I can ! .

SARDINIAN SHOPPING - When @instagramcreative is working in Sardinia her eagle eye seeks out the best interiors and fashion pieces that will translate into useful pieces at home - here on the market a fabulous selection of throws - SWIPE RIGHT to see ONE in situ now in my dining room ! .

WAIST HIGH - when the urn disappears under a cloud of white daisies and the flowers in the borders are waist high and in some cases head high - I love it !! This ‘jungle’ look is not for everyone but this week I have a garden visitor who has told me he doesn’t like a ‘controlled ‘ look ‘ - perfect ! .

PURPLE HAZE - The name of these stunning roses soon to be making their debut on stage ! As a floral designer and demonstrator I am well aware that your reputation is only as good as your last event and the quality of flowers you work with ! These are some of my absolute favourites ! Transporting such beautiful blooms is always a challenge especially in such heat as we currently have and ice packs within the flower boxes have proved invaluable ! .

CURRENT TRENDS - There is no doubt that as the seasons roll along every few weeks a different bloom is revealed to us as the ‘must have’ plant / bloom of the moment ! Fabulous tulips were replaced with flamboyant peonies and now it’s The Annabelle Hydrangeas that are stealing the show
1️⃣ here at Vill D’Ephrussi my pic of them looking totally sensational ( Cote D’azur) 2️⃣ @gncgarden - showstoppers - an account to follow if you don’t already know it
3️⃣At the Belgium home of @angelaridge looking their best
4️⃣ @firmdalehotels - Number Sixteen ( photo @jennyroseinnes )
Can you resist ? Not for long ! .

BLUE and GREEN always look fabulous together especially when set off against pure white - totally inspirational - the new showroom @highgatehouseprivatecollection - if only Brisbane was somewhat nearer ! .

AT THE BUS STOP ! Whilst in The Lakes yesterday not only were the buildings beautifully florally decorated ( see previous posts ) but this bus stop caught my eye ! When do we ever associate a bus stop with fabulous planting ? Well here it is - truly inspirational the bus stop in the centre of Windemere ! .

TRADITIONS - The lakes were a floral fantasy yesterday when we visited ! Hotel frontages tumbled with flowers literally stopping you in your tracks ! These 2 ( SWIPE RIGHT ) hanging basket adorned a church doorway and looked stunning against the stone ! There has been no rain or wind to batter them this year and they are looking magnificent ! Keeping them watered in this heat is quite a challenge ! .

ALTERNATIVE COLOURS ! This stunning colour combination of planted containers at The Howgill Hotel between Windermere and Bowness in the Lake District today literally stopped me in my tracks today ! The whole of the he double fronted hotel is covered on both floors with these colourful blooms ! ( actually it was hubby who had to screech to a halt as I shouted out - all in the name of bringing you beautiful flowers ) .
