First Rose Flush

Zoe Field

Its now the end of our first Rose flush, and as we dead head and wait for the next flowering, our cut garden is beginning to come into its own. The Scabiosa Pods are a blaze,  I’m getting to the stage that when I close my eyes all I see are Scabiosa Pods! I adore their texture and colour, they look so scrummy with pinks, creams, apricots…well every colour really.
My other love at the moment are Dinner plate sized Dahlia flowers, We have a beautiful creamy one flowering at the moment and I can’t get enough of these beauties, I often find myself face first in them, If someone came up from behind, they may think I was making out with a Dahlia, what can I say I love flowers!
