I had high hopes this year of taking lots of lovely flower pictures over the Summer, but then England had the hottest Summer on record which decimated many flower gardens. Ironically, the hedgerows were in better shape than many of the planted gardens. These are a just a few pictures I took a few weeks after the heatwave ended.
Thankfully, many of the gardens have now recovered and the grass has turned from the colour of straw back to lush green. However, Autumn has set in and although the chance has passed to capture those lovely Summer flowers, it brings with it new opportunities.
