It’s funny how, as the number of garden blooms reduces, you suddenly notice things you hadn’t during the relative abundance earlier in the year.
Today’s vase was prompted by the realisation that the inherited rose by the front gate (any clues as to a name?) was a good match for the Scabiosa atropurpurea Fata Morgana still hanging on in the Bronze Bed. The rose is having a fabulous second flush, but I can’t believe it can last for much longer, hence the title.
All in all a rather soft, summery vase – doubtless my subconscious remaining in denial of the current season!
Why don’t you head over to Cathy’s site and see whether others are doing a better job of embracing the autumnal season, or clinging on to summer like me?
