A combination of late flowers, drying seedheads and fallen leaves graces our mid-November garden.
There is still a surprising amount of colour in the garden, mid-October, and not yet from turning leaves.
Mid-September, and the borders are still blazing, with many of the same stalwarts continuing to shine, and a few newcomers joining the stage.
The mid-August garden is still awash with colour. The light is changing slightly as summer draws on; towards the end of the day the shadows seem deeper and flowers glow vividly in this early evening caress.
Mid-July and the garden is full of so many different flowers that it would be impossible to do justice to each one in a single post. I shall restrict myself, then, to some of the highlights.
Mid-June, and despite cool temperatures, high winds and frequent showers, the garden is starting to simmer with colour.

The quietest month in the garden. No more snow has fallen again in the past weeks, but frosts graze the garden and leave blocks of ice where water once stood.
