Last of the summer flowers

The faded hydrangea head still manages to look glamorous in her autumn colours.
A bit like me?

I love the seed heads in the garden at this time of year

Wedding White

A late poppy making a show befoe the bad weather sets in

The big brother poppy seed head - lovely when they turn brown for flower arranging

The bumble bee making the most of a late nectar bar

I have to dig up the geraniums and move them before the frost

Daisy and Gozzie having a rummage for worms

Last of the sunflowers

Lobelia - fading fast

Daring, in your face, dahlias - keep flowering their hearts out until the frost
