In general, I think people who love autumn are a bit strange. To me it seems a negative, downhill time of year, but on a day like today when the sun’s shining, the birds are singing and the garden’s not yet a soggy, decaying mess, I’m prepared to cut autumn some slack. Even more so when I can pop into the garden and still rustle up a small vase of pink lovelies.
In today’s vase are a few Rosa St Swithuns, Salvia Cerro Potosi,
a random (out of focus) Pelargonium,
and plenty of bright pink Flower Carpet roses, as well as three stems of silvery Phlomis italica for foliage.
