When one of Europe’s leading fashion houses hosts a special event it’s time for these beautiful white roses to shine.

They are grown in Colombia where the climate and altitude produces these extraordinarily huge blooms, heavy with a strong licoricey perfume of aniseed.

One can only hope they don’t steal the limelight from the frocks.

Swan Plant

Swan Plant

I had never seen these crazy lantern like pods before this week, but every Kiwi who came into our shop on Smith St recognised them immediately as Swan Plant. They study them in primary school as they are home to the Monarch caterpillar . The season is pretty short, a couple of weeks or so but we’re hoping to get some more in tomorrow.


Pretty as a Peach

Combined with dahlias, snowberry, daisies, sedum and hydrangea they blended to a pinky, peachy perfection.
