The annual wild flowers are still in flower. The patch has changed a great deal since I last took photos in September. There’s a much more mellow look with lots of straw coloured stalks and seed heads. Today it has been quite dull and overcast with just an occasional glimpse of the sun and yet…

Persistent flowers include Cornflowers in shades of blue, pink and white, a few bright yellow evening primroses and best of all annual Rudbeckias in all shades or orange.
Well… You know I love orange!
These are not British Wild Flowers but annual seeds sold as wild flower mixtures. I do grow wild flowers from this area of the UK and I’m all in favour of encouraging beneficial insects into the garden with either native plants or non natives. It’s taken me a while to reach this point of view which is explained in my earlier blog post What Should We Grow? To read more just click the image below.
I love British wild flowers and non-natives. Which do you prefer?
