It's quite a while since I joined in Riitta's Floral Passions (Floral Bliss post) so today I'm sharing the flowers that were in bloom in our Italian garden in July and August (oleander and jasmine).
Back in our UK garden there's still a lot of colour as the roses are still blooming. The pink phlox is almost over now, but there are one or two self-seeding poppies. The white oriental poppy is also blooming again after Mr. P trimmed it down after it had flowered earlier in the year. I'm also pleased to see the nasturtium flowers growing close to the dry stone wall in the front garden and clinging onto the wires that support the grape vines. I quite like the combination of orange, reds and pinks although my favourite colours in flowers are creams and different shades of white.
One of our daughters stayed in our house and looked after our flowers and vegetables before and after her time with us in Italy which was a great help as we've been enjoying the produce she took care of ever since. When we arrived back home ourselves we found that she had left us a beautiful ironwork 'Welcome Home' planter filled with a variety of herbs.
I'm still rather behind with catching up with all your news. I picked up a bug and was unwell when we got back from Italy, but I'm better now. Also we're kept busy and entertained by the company of our local grandchildren who come to visit, sometimes with their friends, several times a week.
Speak to you again soon and wishing you a good day! Linda:)
P.S. Thank you for your kind comments. I'm having problems with my internet connection so I'll be back when I can.
