Well the summer has surely been amazing so far this year. Who would have thought 2018 would be a record breaking summer. The wedding season has gone off to a brilliant start and hardly a drop of rain to spoil the day. I now have the most fragranced Sweet Peas in my garden to choose from as well as some beautiful Hydrangea. The Hydrangea have been very labour intensive during this hot spell as their name depicts they are incredibly thirsty. The ones I have in posts have been watered sometimes three times a day Phew!!
A little fragrant posy below I found in my archive from about 4 or 5 years ago with a little dried lavender. We recreated this as an ever lasting bouquet a few months later.
There are a busy few months left this year of weddings and parties as well as venue open days to attend all to keep us on out toes.
If you re planning a wedding or a special occasion pop along to the open day at Brinkburn Northumberland on Sunday 12th August from 11 till 3 or Thursday 23rd August 4 till 8. Set in the woods by the river, party in the tipi and a ceremony in the Priory or white room. or if its a barn you are after, Doxford Barns on 23rd August 5 till 8. Set on a working farm in the middle of the rolling Northumberland Countryside.
