Roses seem to be the last of the lovelies blooming now. Once again they are served up in the crystal vase with Hebe ‘variegata’ as background.
Rudbeckia is fading and Echinacea heads are drying — ready for migrating finches to feast. Hydrangea still holds its mopheads in shades of green, though there are few bright blue and pink ones left. I always feel a kind of sadness as summer wanes and autumn approaches. Soon it will be time to put the gardens to bed, and haul in some firewood!
Thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for providing space to enjoy creating with cut flowers!
