June : The Monthly Bloom

Quite a contrast from the soft pinks and greens of May, my garden in June is full of bright jewel tones.

File_000 (6).jpegEverything in this arrangement is cut from my garden. It contains annuals: sweetpeas, corncockle, cosmos, cornflowers and larkspur, a biennial foxglove, and perennials: alchemilla mollis, dahlias, spirea foliage, and anemone and blue allium bulbs.

This lovely pompom dahlia is called ‘Franz Kafka’. He’s almost too perfect to believe.
