Although the above mosaic shows over 25 different blooms that were in flower today – and excluded several others – they are almost all isolated beacons of brightness. There are no borders replete with blocks of colour, although the dahlias in the cutting beds and the border with Bishop of Llandaff, Rudbeckia Rustic Dwarf and self-seeded nasturtiums come close. Apart from the dahlias, I couldn’t really say what the highlights are – there are things blooming for the first time, some that have bloomed for months and some that are just drop-dead gorgeous. One thing is certain – it is a more floriferous October than last year, and thanks go to Carol at May Dreams Garden who encourages us to record what is blooming in our garden every month.
