The beautiful sunny weather we have been enjoying over this last week has been a real bonus. Look at this Mediterranean blue sky, against which the Magnolia leaves shine.
The delicate pink petals of a cyclamen hederifolium with its silvery green leaves. This was a real bonus as I haven't any cyclamen in the borders now, but I noticed this little one in a pot. Nature can be so generous.
Bright, happy and fabulous shades of pink cosmos. This is a recent favourite of mine and I would like to grow much more next year. I am intending to grow lots of other annuals next year and am really hoping for a riot of colour (as well as nectar and pollen for insects).
Aster 'Little Carlow' I think, and it is a mass of pale lilac, elegant daisy flowers.
I couldn't resist another shot of zingy colour - it may not be to everyone's taste, but I love it! I am hoping we'll be lucky enough to enjoy more of the early autumn sun to keep these colours going a bit longer. (I know, I'm just greedy!)
