I’m not a squealy kind of person.

But guaranteed, every time I receive the Floral Highlights from Amber Persia I get a little bit giddy. Not least because this time round, Amber also sent a photo of Hector (the pup) helping out in the studio! Too. Cute.

This August edition is ridiculously pretty, it’s also close to my own heart…

I was an August Bride.

The boy and I married in an English Garden on a hot summer’s day and we were surrounded by the heady scent of roses – It was all deliciously romantic.

So I am, of course, loving today’s wedding flower picks…

Notes from Amber

A fabulous summer garden party in a beautiful walled garden, Pimms on the lawn, the scent of gorgeous and oh so romantic roses. That’s what I think of when I imagine August so my Floral Highlight for this holiday month has to be the scented garden rose.

Their exquisite beauty, whether in bud or just as the colour is fading and petals are about to fall, intense fragrance and hint of nostalgia ensure the garden rose is the quintessential British summer flower.

Whether your love is for the big and blousy, such as Prince Jardenier, with its saucer sized blooms in the palest blush pink, delicate spray roses (the one in the photo is English Miss), just perfect for hair flowers and tiny flower girls, or something bold and striking such as Purple Tiger, there are some simply gorgeous scented garden roses – so go out, explore, and don’t forget to smell the roses.
