Flowers that once had their days of glory months ago have now sent out a few late arrivals all over the garden. They all know that a Perthshire winter isn't that far away and have given me little reminders of how beautiful they once were. These include rhododendrons, geraniums, dianthus, persicaria, spring anemone's, honeysuckle and roses.
They give just a sprinkling of colour in the borders. While there are plenty of other late summer flowers which dominate the garden with their seasonal colours.
Their shades and hues are predominately pinks, reds and purple with a few splashes of bright yellow as you'll see from the photos below...
