In a few weeks time, when the only flowers to be found will be strident and bright, assembling bouquets will require nerves of steel or a stiff drink, or possibly both. But for now there is still some gentleness to be found. Pinks merging with greens, whites fading gently. Roses may tinged by an overnight rain … no matter there is still beauty in them.
Here is what I found this morning: my climbing hydrangea that is offering its very last petals, the last pierre de ronsard roses, a little sedum, white cosmos, pinky green hydrangea and best of all my all time favourite dahlia – huge, creamy white tinged with the slightest hint of pale pale salmon. How I wish I had planted more of this one!
Hope you enjoy, my gift to you to brighten your Tuesday!
