The English summer garden is a riot of colour,texture and fragrance.
The summer starts for me with the blooming of the magnolia.
However it is the rose in it's many forms that is the quintessential summer bloom.
The roses come in such a number of shapes and sizes they are the perennial favourite of many.
I prefer them under planted with lavender, forget-me-nots and spring bulbs.
Other personal favourites include,tulips lacecap hydrangea, hosta's and aquilegia.
Later as draws in the michaelmas daisies prolong the colour.
this stamp just goes with many flowers, in this card I used the rose as my theme .
I think I am in my purple mood this month.
