August Gardening: Wildflower Colours

After the main show of colour from June through to July, the heat and dry is setting in later this year – rose hips forming, poppies going to seed, grass going dormant – and there are fewer colours in my garden until the autumnal show comes on.

Apart from some hot colours that create a splash, there are more subtle whites, blues and purples, seen here arranged in a vase.

The arrangement ┬áis from the garden, mostly “wildflowers”, though purposely propagated. The aim was to give cool colours inside the house.
