Photo montage of late summer
I thought I would join three photos together, to make a different image - it shows some of the late summer colours and textures in the garden. Top left is a double clematis, with petals that remind me of faded purple damask or velvet, Clematis viticella purpurea 'Plena Elegans'. Somehow, the long complex Latin name really suits the flower as it is an elegant plant. Top right is a close up of the gorgeous grass Miscanthus sinensis 'Kleine Fontane' and at the bottom is a Hydrangea (the one from the cut price supermarket) which is a riot of beautifully fading lime green, beige, pink and purple. It seems to have a new colour combination every day and reminds me of a well worn ancient embroidery which is slowly fading in the light, but which still retains an element of the beauty it once had.
