Bringing some outdoors in

Deutzia Longifolia (just looked that up!) and a peony from the garden
I couldn't resist bringing some of this into the house to look at.
 The shrub is a deutzia longifolia (just had to look that up!) and is one inherited with the garden.
 It is just beautiful but only for a week or two.
 Unfortunately it has no scent but it makes up for that in looks I think.
 It just happens to go perfectly with a peony that is also out at just the right time.
The first dhalia of the year

This is the first dahlia of the year with some astrantia.

Elderflowers and sugar

Elderflower cordial in the making

I have been making some elderflower cordial this week.
Off to sew now!
I hope you have a good weekend.
