I am Julie King, author of Peonies & Posies and self taught gardener, artisan florist and amateur photographer. All the images that you will see here have been taken by me either on my Canon 500D or on my iPhone and almost all the flowers are homegrown.
I am also a wife and mother to three as well as the proud owner of 2 dogs, a cat, 2 rabbits and 6 Buff Orpington hens. In my few free moments I am trying to learn to play the piano and always like to have a good book on the go.
Peonies & Posies is my special place where I can share in words and images the seasonal life of my romantic English garden. I am very lucky to live in an old victorian rectory with a large garden that is partly walled and partly enclosed with a beautiful seasonal hedgerow. The garden is filled with old, large trees, dreamy seasonal blossom, lots of fruit and my favourite roses, peonies, delphiniums, lilac and lavender.
