Summer flowers

The wet weather here in the UK has driven us all to distraction. But one thing that the weather has bought with it is the most beautiful summer flowers. Gorgeous, scented colour fills the garden, so what better excuse to take some pictures of them. My mum gave me the peonies from her garden, aren't they incredible, and the stocks and other pink flowers are a bit of a cheat from the local florist, but I thought they look so pretty together I couldn't resist photographing them.

I love to put flowers in unexpected things too - the spotty scandinavian coffee pot is from a charity shop - £2 - don't you love those little finds. And the jug with the peonies is one we use in the summer for juice - ha! But that soft mint colour goes perfectly with the pink of the peonies.

What are your favourite flowers? And how is your garden looking this summer?
