Colours of Late Summer, Part Two

Yesterday the focus was on bright, vivid colours.

Today some pastels for the start of September! Pinks and blues, violets and purples. The mix of colours surprised me so late in the year at a garden I visited in the UK last week. But perhaps I am thinking in terms of “late” for Germany, and not England!

BLUE and PINK

Butterflies were everywhere in this border, particularly attracted to the Buddleia and white Sedum. The bursts of shocking pink are Cleome.

PINK and PURPLE

Cosmos, Sage, Purple Loosestrife, Sedums (with purple foliage)…

VIOLET

Clematis and other climbers were on every available wall…

And some deeper shades here. Japanese Anemones, Dahlias, Eupatorium…

… and a dark red, almost chocolate -coloured Scabiosa…

Hope you enjoyed visiting this English garden with me!
