Late summer is richer, warmer, more golden.
It’s the colour of wheat fields, bejewelled hedgerows and sunlight bathing you and everything else in a gentler, more golden, tone.
August to September is when some of the most beautiful colours make their entry into the borders. Not only do they arrive cloaked in the richest of colours, they arrive bold and beautifully with statuesque forms and the downiest most velvety of stems and petals.
Welcome now to the cacophony of agapanthus, dahlias, sunflowers, verbascums, cosmos, crocosmias and all manner of beauties.
