the fringe of Clevedon, you will find our Home that is just blooming with
excitement and colour. Purchasing it in 2015 with only having viewed
the Garden that at the time was overgrown and in need of TLC, we set about to
repair and restore it to its prior glory.
In Dec 2019
2019, caring and budding my 75 rose bushes of all varieties and colour and my
love for flowers and nature, we talked and decided it was time to share our
excitement and passion for flowers that only enticed the 5 senses sensationally.
Visitors and friends constantly refer to the property as the Wedding Garden, a
place to celebrate. Every day is a celebration, so to celebrate and share our
passion and beauty that surrounds us, we have established and created
Scents of Clevedon.
Now it is
our time to share it with the World.
“Our Logo” came about one day when I was in the Garden and picked what I viewed as a perfect
rose. At the same time, it was the anniversary of a dear friend’s father’s
parting. He was renowned for his love of Roses’ and had won many awards. I took a photo in memory of him to
share with the family. When I went back and had a good look at the photo, I
realized it was just the right image for my Logo and represent what we are all about. Roses and “All Things Nice”
The original owner and designer
of the rose circle left a diagram and list of the
roses she planted. The rose is by David Austin; however, the name is not
recorded. It starts as a very tight budded pale pink rose, then expands
overnight and cups out. Just beautiful with a divine soft subtle fragrance.
On the boundaries of the garden, we have the most aromatic rose hips, which I have enjoyed
turning into good old-fashioned Rose Hip Jelly, and a wonderful ginger and rosehip cough syrup. I have even dried the hips to add to soaps.
For now, watch this space as we expand and develop more garden beds of beauty, adding to
them my personal favourite, the Dahlia.
