Styling The Seasons – September
Hello everyone, I hope you had a lovely weekend.
I make no apology for the glut of floral posts at the moment! I have come to realise that I am a better gardener for late summer blooming flowers. I lack the organisation to plant spring bulbs in the autumn – I often buy packets of tulip bulbs with every intention of planting them, only to rediscover them 6 months later in a cupboard. Indeed, my garden has very few flowers between the months of March and June – e.g. the months everyone else’s garden is in full, beautiful bloom! Instead, mine is in full flourish now, just when we are starting to spend more time inside than out.
So, for this months Styling the Seasons post, I thought I’d bring the garden inside, and make the most of this floral abundance before it disappears. I’ve displayed my blooms en masse in my collection of glass jars, along with my vintage floral postcards and prints for full chintzy effect. My mint green cupboard was a lucky find at a local vintage furniture/house clearance emporium, and the paint is original – I had to have it!
