Summer 2014 Revisited

Marigold FlowerThere’s something about a cold and windy December day that makes me yearn for a few rays of sunshine. I’ve been looking at summer photos today and that brief glimpse into the recent past inspired me to make photo collages for June, July and August.

When it’s grey and dismal outside I need something to remind me how beautiful the garden can look when the sun shines!

The pastel shades of the June flowers soon merge into bolder colours in July and August. It’s not just the flowers that are missing now… the bees and butterflies have all gone too. I know they’ll all be back next year and in the meantime I’m making the most of winter.


I’ve just picked out a few pictures of some star plants for each month. It’s amazing how every month in the garden has such a distinctive look and atmosphere.
