Today is Summer Solstice - a celebration of the beginning of Summer!
Around this time in our Garden, a Danish white Rose blooms, filling the area behind our shop with that heady Rose scent which is missing in hothouse Roses. We have been so busy that I almost missed seeing all the blooms.
From a couple of cuttings bought at a yard sale to a massive profusion of stems and blooms...this Rose spreads quickly. At the back of our shop is a wild tangled mess of grapevine, this Rose, and hops.
Bees fly among the blossoms, collecting pollen.
A handful of blooms picked to float in water in a glass square, a simple, yet effective Summer centrepiece.
Enjoy the Summer Solstice, make sure to get outside and enjoy the weather!
