June: a month of Photography
Photos of dried wedding flowers
At the beginning of the month I was emailed by Tess, a happy bride who had used my dried flowers at her wedding, with a link to a lovely blog post written by her photographer Esme Ducker.

A visit from a gardens photographer – potpourri making
Then this week I was visited by Nicola Stocken who is writing a potpourri-making article. We made potpourri from dried flowers from my garden.
I spent an afternoon potpourri making in my garden with a photographer. This photo was taken by me.
Photographing my own flowers and drying projects
Not to mention photographing my own garden and dried flowers:
Mixed flowers ready for drying including fuchsias, roses, scented leaf pelargoniums, marigolds, geraniums and herbs.
Pretty dried flowers including aquilegia, marigold petals, fuchsia, geranium, pelargonium flowers.
Some pressed flowers including marguerite, geranium, viburnum, carnation and Mexican orange.
A basket of whole roses and rose petals ready to dry, including the varieties Constance Spry and Margaret Merill.
Flowers ready to dry from my garden: white peonies, scented carnations, chamomile flowers, pot marigolds, cornflowers, and geranium flowers.
Pictures of herbs everywhere
In June, I received some images from GeoWear who used our dried roses at the Chelsea flower show, had an article on dried lavender published in Herbs magazine, and published a post on chamomile flowers.

All in all a busy but rewarding month!
