I picked a very tasteful bunch of flowers today. Just marigolds, roses and honeysuckle. I’m drawn to bright colours and I don’t often do tasteful so I just couldn’t resist adding a couple of orange poppies and a few springs of orangey-red honeysuckle.
This summer I’ve growing lots of annuals from seed and I’m loving the marigolds. And so are the bees! There are flowers in every shade of orange and yellow. They all seem to start off quite dark in bud then gradually turn paler as the blooms fade. More about them on Friday but in the meantime here’s a taste of what’s to come.
I’m linking with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden today.
You can see her red hot flowers and there are links to other gardeners too.
