Today, September is the new July! ;-)

It might well be September but here in our garden, today, the flowers are behaving

in a July kind of fashion!

They show no sign of fading or slowing down but maybe that's because

I'm a big one for dead - heading!!

This summer, I've loved the garden and my vote for best flower

has to go to:

Gazanias... galore!

They have been beautiful. I'm drying the dead heads and saving the seed!

Hot on their heels ... all the rest!

I have loved the pretty mauve of the Antirrhinums,

which I grew from seed.

And even in the parts of the garden which are more 'leafy' than 'flowery',

the beauty still shines through.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.....hopefully the sun will shine for you all!

Lovely flowers Sal. Sadly up here in the North our gardens are now looking rather the worse for wear and everything is going rapidly to seed. Thanks for cheering me up.

Just gorgeous pictures. We have had quite a bit of rain in August which we really needed earlier and my roses are suddenly outdoing themselves. In fact I don't think I have had such a show ever:)
