Garden in August

A close up of a cosmos flower among orange and yellow poppy flowers.

August has been a dreary month and by the looks of things September isn't going any better. It is weird feeling wintry when it's still green outside. Not for long though, the leaves will soon change colour before they fall to the ground.

After looking through my photographs I found many I wanted to share. I'm going to spread out my nature photographs from August between two posts. In today's collection I've included photos of flowers and plants I've taken in my garden over the years.
