The Grand Finale!
Yes, today is the final day of my Week of Flowers and what a week it has been! 😃 This really has kept me busy over the past seven days, and in between packing up Christmas parcels for my family in England and chatting to them on Facetime I have been trying to keep up with the amazing flurry of flowery blogging activity. What fun!
Today I am sharing a mish-mash of favourites, starting with the Larkspur I grew from seed. Such a beautiful colour.
Another gorgeous purply blue is this Geranium, which I think is ‘Orion’. Not only did this flower almost non-stop, the autumn foliage is also really pretty.
All my asters are my favourites, with ‘Mönch’ near the top of the list. And when they faded the Chrysanthemum Anastasia took over and provided colour until the last week of November when we had snow and frost.
The last picture below captures the true blue of Salvia azurea, planted in the Moon Bed. It is a late bloomer, adding a final bit of flair to the garden in September. I think this is the bluest of any plant I have grown yet… no hint of purple at all. It matches the sky. 😃
So, once again a big thank you to all who have visited this past week. Many thanks also for all the kind comments, and a special thank you to those of you who took part and shared such a wide range of beautiful, cheerful and uplifting photos of plants and flowers, providing me with plenty of inspiration for the weeks to come. I have met a few new bloggers along the way, and there has been a wonderful hum of conversation about plants all week. I think this has raised not only my own spirits, but hopefully yours too.
Mission accomplished? 😉
(Same time, same place, next year! 😉)
