Blooming England

Blooming England

With the summer landscape bursting with blooms, there’s inspiration in spade-loads for flower lovers this season. If you’ve got a passion for petals, take a look at our suggestions of where to see summer flowers. We love to fall under the spell of a splash of crimson poppies or succumb to the profusion of perfume and life, the gentle refrain of bees and birdsong. From sun-kissed walks through wildflower meadows and cliff-top rambles scented by honey-sweet gorse to rambling cottages clad with voluminous roses and country gardens billowing with colour, now’s the time to get out and witness nature at its zenith.
