Walking around my rather straggly, rain-soaked garden after work today, I was delighted to find some very lovely reminders of summer. I picked all of these lovely blooms, and was very happy to bring them into the house to cheer it up. With a cold nip in the air, and some very heavy showers, the light levels have been rather low. There are snapdragons still flowering (surely the best value for money, flower-wise, this year), roses and fuchsias, all in complementary shades of red, yellow and purple.
These berries looked good with the fuchsias too.
I put the roses in our bedroom.
They finally ended up on my bedside table where they made me smile when I woke up this morning. At 6.30 the world was still dark outside, but the sight of them made getting up a much nicer experience! x
