  1. Interesting. The wild flowers at Wisley were all but over a month ago. This is a lovely display.

    1. These weren't flowering last month, Victoria and were the most striking beds there

  2. So pretty. I bet they get plenty of buzzy visitors.

  3. Lovely, and so very natural looking. It's not quite as easy to achieve as they make it look though I think!

    1. I'm guessing that it was a wild flowers mix, CJ bit they can be disappointing. Maybe they mix their own - I should have read the label.

  4. It looks fabulous, especially so late in the season.

  5. Looks amazing. I love wildflower beds. Except Queen Anne's Lace, it gives me terrible rash.

    1. I do too Leanan, Do carrot tops affect you too. I know the sap of some of these type of plants especially parsnip react to skin badly in sunshine.

    1. There wasn't really any significant fragrance Nadezda so your imagination is adding something extra.

    1. Thinking about it, Jane we didn't see much wind damage, if any, there at all. I think all the trees, large shrubs, hedges and walls must give quite a lot of protection. Depending in wind direction it is wooded to two sides and the garden slops away from the buildings down towards the stream and one wooded side.. The last lot of photos were in a fairly enclosed area too.
