Floral Friday

What a beautiful week it has been for getting out in the garden, for enjoying all the blossom on the trees and for filling my home with peonies. 

I have been planting margarite, lobelia, sweetpeas and cosmos. The Cosmos 'Antiquity' was kindly sent from Sarah Raven and I can't wait to watch them grow as they are one of my favourite Summer flowers.

I have also put up a hanging basket and planted these pretty Wallflowers, a gift from my Mum, and started using my willow sweet pea frames.

This weekend we have a three day weekend here in the UK, so I'm looking forward to a trip to a garden centre and some more planting. I hope this beautiful sunshine continues.

Today I  started a new Instagram competition #floralfriday and asked people to submit a botanical image. My favourite image of the day will win a packet of my botanical prints. It's been so lovely to see so many beautiful images today. I think this may become a regular Friday thing. 

I hope you have a lovely weekend and get to spend some time outside soaking up Spring.
