For my birthday last week, a dear friend too far away sent me this autumnal display.
Aren't these scarlett pom pom Dahlias beautiful? And bonus, bought from a car boot for the grand sum of £1, they lasted a whole week. Not an earwig in sight.
These geraniums are Italian, and don't they look it in their lovely terracotta trough?
These were wild flowers in the olympic park. I heard they dead headed everything after the olympics, to rejuvenate them in time for the para olympics. I hope it worked.
and this shot is of the 'hot' bed at Cliveden. They have deep, sloping, hot and cool coloured beds, either side of a large expanse of manicured lawn, in front of the house.
That's the end of my flowers for this year.
