It's our favourite season here at Bloomologie - time to dig out the knitwear and wellies, and revel in the vibrant autumn colour and glorious light that September and October bring. Yes, we know it can be dreary and cold, but you also get crisp sunny days, windy walks and fantastic flowers from dazzling dahilas and rudbeckia to burnt orange heleniums and the return of the ranunculus.
There's an intensity to autumn flowers - their hues set the garden ablaze and the bravely flower on until the first frosts, we love them.
And while we're busy enjoying and harvesting the dahlias, we're also sowing sweet peas and poppies for next spring, and preserving hydrangea, beech leaves and rose hips to see us through the winter (you'll find them all in our Christmas wreaths).
And yes, Christmas isn't far away either - we've started listing dates for our workshops at Blackheath Conservatoire and at Home Cafe in Lee Road, so why not make your own Christmas wreath this year under our expert tuition?!
