It is hard to convey just how wet the end of May has been here. In Paris the Seine has broken its banks, and here the non-stop rain is making my garden rather unhappy.
When the garden gets too wet, and the flowers are beginning to give up the fight, the best solution is just to go ahead and pick them and enjoy them inside the house. Just bring those roses and peonies into the dry.
So today I took a secateur and chose some peonies and some Constance Spry roses, mixed in with a few Iceberg, some Nigella and the Cerinthus that I love so much.
Hopefully the sun will return this week, and the garden will perk up, but in the meantime at least I have a couple of bouquets on tables and fireplaces.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend, thank you for reading me.
