Late Summer

It is time for bright, strong colours and plenty of lush growth. Time for Dahlias - they never stop amazing me, so intricate looking with each perfectly curled petal wrapped tightly around the centre of the bud. And time for bright orange Calendulas, so easy to manage as long as you keep deadheading to encourage flowering and to stop their fat seeds from spreading all over the place. And at last, with this summer weather that has finally arrived, time to just sit, look and enjoy it all.
