My flowers for the 17th of May were white Pionies and Clematis! I love the smell of pionies and their voluptuosness. I am not a great fan of bouquets in red, white and blue so.... :) I think choosing just one or two of the main colours makes it fit in any national look harmoniously.
Superb weather made for a lovely national day. We had family over for lunch after the procession. A classic favourite. Gratinated potatoes, marinaded salmon, asparagus and a salad. Apple cider and strawberries and cream for dessert. Somethings are just so simple and delicious!
