In the world of people whose world revolves around flowers, now is a glorious (but very short) window of opportunity to max out on peonies. Late November, early December is the time.

The Holloway Shop is a Cape Town floral design studio run by Storm Ross, who loves to use a mixture of everyday garden flowers, berries and leaves, with more romantic, ‘grander’ flowers – peonies being a good example.

November’s a great time to bring beautiful summer flowers into your home.

November’s a great time to bring beautiful summer flowers into your home.

Pick them from your garden (or a friend’s garden) and mix them with whatever kinds of prettiness you find at the flower sellers on the corner or at your local supermarket. What else will you find in your garden, that you should pick now? Giant hydrangeas (Christmas flowers), Lavender and Frangipani stems.
