August break

The flowers I managed to find

By August break I don’t mean a holiday, but the lean patch which the garden always undergoes at this time of year.

Perhaps I should say ‘green patch’, because after all the colours of May, June and July, the garden is now predominantly green (and would have been brown if we hadn’t watered it).

The roses are between bloomings. The lavender is over. The buddleia is nearly over. The hibiscus is still largely in bud.

In honour of a guest coming tomorrow, I wanted a vase of flowers on the table and this little nosegay more-or-less wiped us out.

    Your guest will love the little nosegay. Here in Maine, my garden has hit its peak. I only have a few more plants that will bloom before fall.

      Thank you for your kind comment. She did like it! With the rain we had yesterday evening, I’m hoping for another flush of growth and blooming in the garden.
