SUMMER BOUQUET

One of the joys of having a garden is that one is always able to cut flowers and transfer the great outdoors into the house, bringing wonderful fragrances and colours indoors. This is a simple mixed flower bouquet of summer flowers growing in our garden. They smell wonderful and they brighten the room up.

You can see these flowers in the bouquet:
White summer jasmine (Jasminum azoricum)
Orange montbretia (Crocosmia spp)
Red beardtongues (Penstemon hartwegii)
Orange calendula (Calendula officinalis)
Pink cosmos (Cosmos bipinnatus)
Red/pink desert saviour (Echeveria spp)
Red rose (Rosa spp)
White double daisy (Leucanthemum 'Ice Star')
Pink zinnias (Zinnia x hybrida)
Mauve lily turf (Liriope muscari)
White feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium)
Basil foliage (Ocimum basilicum).
