Saved from the Rain

Last night we were forecast heavy rain, a typical British summer!  I looked out in the garden and realised that my peonies which have just opened and the roses were about to get completely ruined.  So I cut a lot of them to bring them indoors and enjoy them in here. I wish I could have left them in my fruit bowl, don’t they look gorgeous? But they are now all over the house in pretty much every container I could find.  I don’t mind it rained now!

  2. Wow! I’ve just seen some peonies in Waitrose (lovely but pricy) and yours look 10 times nicer. I’m now inspired to go and potter in my tiny garden 🙂

  3. Thanks for all your lovely comments, I must admit I was very sad to pick them but it’s wonderful they have given you all so much pleasure 🙂

  4. Beautiful!! What a fabulous array of colours!! I would have loved to cut my own roses but was beat to the punch, if you will, by a complete stranger who pulled up in her car with a set of clippers and helped herself to a bouquet from the bush on the side of my house. True. Story.
