Dove Cottage Herb Kitchen, Cutting Garden and Painter's Paradise

June and July in Dove Cottage is a magical time....the epitome of summer, with gorgeous cottage garden plantings... a perfect cutting garden for weddings with a wild and abundant feel, a 'picked from the field' look and for all natural stylings. Love flowers that blow in the wind... the tall purple spikes of verbena borealis ; beautiful Cosmos,  which always takes me back to the markets of Pollenca, Mallorca, where you would not think to go home without flowers for the table - beautiful artisan cheeses, olives, locally grown honey, fresh peasant style bread and salad leaves, peppers and tomatoes just picked from the  fincas that morning. George painting for an exhibition - drawing his inspiration from the exuberant poppy and other wild and carefree blooms.  Also love using these glass cloches in wedding styling. There are so many things you can do... Not only are blackcurrants amazing, (just picked from the bush and popped in your mouth before they reach the kit
