Goodbye Summer Flowers

There are still some great summer flowers to be seen, despite September officially being the end of summer. However we have had a good summer here in the UK to encourage the blooms but looks like the warm weather is coming to an end this week. Hopefully the change won’t kill off the flowers yet.

This Fuchsia in my garden was very late flowering but looks great now!

I had a lovely trip to Torquay recently and their flowers in the park near the sea front are beautiful too.

I was at Torquay to deliver this Kingfisher and Rhododendron painting to Artizan gallery for an exhibition. It’s not up yet but looking forward to seeing it in situ!
