The Last Flowers of Summer.

Its hard to believe that we are already into October, We haven't had time to sort out the garden so the late summer flowers are struggling to hang on in the torrential rain that we have had in the past week. The lawn that we seeded in the spring, that struggled all the way through the hot summer, has finally come into its own. It is lush and green and in need of a cut. To do that we need it to be dry, I don't think that is going to happen for a while!!!
The Sunflowers have not been great this year, we haven't looked after them that well either. They seemed to do a fair bit of growing when we were away in August, then the wind caught them and since then it has been impossible to keep them upright.. This particular flower met a very unfortunate end, I moved the rotary washing line around and decapitated it! This obviously did something to the plant as it started to produce lots and lots of little flowers, there are still quite a few of them ready to flower!

I still love Sunflowers, even when they are past their best!!
