In contrast to last Saturday this morning was cool, dull and windy. I was at the plot early and had only just arrived when I saw, and heard, several parakeets flying round low overhead with one of them then setting down on top of one of my sunflowers.
Looking round it’s good to still see so much colour. All these photos I took today, click on any of the pictures to see a larger image.
Here are the purple and white Michaelmas daisies, the latter which has very small, finger nail size, flowers. There are also some yellow pot marigolds, a sunflower and, up in the sky, a handful of Jerusalem artichoke flowers.
The cosmos seem to be more prolific then ever with lots of buds and flowers. They, along with everything else, should keep going until the first frost. Across the road on Fran’s plot are a border of French marigolds.
If all that is not enough then I can look across at the dahlias on a nearby plot.
Happy, and colourful, gardening!
