kilner jars & english summer flowers

these lovely kilner jars were to be used as the table centres
for a wedding at the weekend

the window sills at the walled garden
were then decorated with masses of bottles & jars
in all shapes and sizes
which the groom had collected
from when he was a little boy

you will have to wait for the pictures to come from the photographer,
 it will be worth the wait

did you have a lovely weekend?
it was a bit on the wet side
the perfect excuse to catch up with the archers
read the sunday paper & catch up on some floral blogs

my love is like a red red rose

the immortal words of robert burns

set the scene for lisa's wedding last weekend

mixing rose ivanhoe, naomi, red sensation 
with rosa glauca & jamine
black mint & muehlenbeckia
it was a botanical masterpiece

the church was filled with scented white roses
honeysuckle & jasmine
hydrangeas & cow parsley

perfect for a country wedding
