40 Flo­ral Notes

Country House Magazine - - June -

The month in flow­ers

What's bloom­ing?

Al­though roses are the birth flower of June and are plen­ti­ful in gar­dens, you can't fail to ad­mire the glo­ri­ous beauty of pe­onies. Avail­able in many shades of pink, from pow­dery to shock­ing, and also white, they cre­ate a truly spec­tac­u­lar dis­play both in the gar­den and in a vase. If in a vase, make sure no fo­liage falls be­low the wa­ter line and you should re­fill the vase (and re-cut the stems) even 2 to 3 days. Try and keep them in the fridge over night to pro­long the blooms.

Sum­mer Ta­bles

Be in­spired to cre­ate a fun ta­ble set­ting with colour­ful table­ware and com­bine very dif­fer­ent de­signs such as these Mariefleur with Rose Cot­tage. Add fresh­ness with flow­ers and a palm leaf in­stead of an un­der­plate gives the ta­ble an ex­otic touch, per­fect for sum­mer.
