August is a tricky time in the garden here in Northern France. The weather gets hotter, and this year we have a strong wind blowing, and the flowers are not so happy.
Of course I keep the free standing pots well watered, and make sure the roses are trimmed and watered too, but we are in between flowering seasons, and the pickings are more sparse than normal
This is a bouquet from the garden today. My ever faithful Polka roses who never disappoint , a couple of Abraham Darby buds, wisteria leaves and blush pink dahlias that are just starting to flower.
And then for some additional texture, I took Gibson for a walk and came home with some elderberries that are not quite ripe yet, and still at that in between colour as they turn from green, through pink and on to black. Plus a handful of a white flowering flower that grows along the road edge, and whose name I don’t even know!
This is a bouquet for no particular reason, other than the pleasure of bringing the outdoors indoors. A bouquet for you, to wish you a good week, and as always to thank you for reading me.
