  5. This is absolutely GORGEOUS! Wish I could go out into the garden and pick such a colourful variety of blooms! a dream!

  6. Absolutely beautiful. Thanks for sharing your wonderful flowers and in such an unique way too. I might have a go at taking some photos of Sissinghurst flowers in this way, it's a lovely way of seeing everything together. Helen (gardener)

    1. Helen, thank you! Please, do it! It'll be wonderful to see what's blooming right now in beautiful Sissinghurst!

  7. That is a very impressive collection of blooms. They look so lovely all together like that, what a great idea.

    1. Paula, thank you! I could do a better job arranging them nicely, but they were wilting so fast, and I needed to rush taking pictures!

  8. I love how you document your blooms in this way, Tatyana. The stunning colors and casual arrangement make beautiful memories. Are you starting a meme? I don't subscribe to many memes, but would consider this. P. x

    1. Thank you Pam! Meme? Never thought about it, but it's not a bad idea!

  9. Wow! What a clever way to display the blooms currently in your garden. They all look fantastic and it is the sort of photo you go back to in November, to remind you of how wonderful it all was !

    1. Thank you Jane! In November and December, and February, and March.... You are so right!

  10. It may be fall, but you still have a spectacular array of flowers Tatyana!

    1. Jennifer, roses, verbena, dahlia, nicotiana, fuchsia and some others are doing great! Thank you!

  11. Tatyana, such a novel and colourful way to show the late flowering plants in your garden. Quite impressive.
