Here we are on 2 September, officially the start of late summer and our last month of the wedding season.
What a beautiful morning, not a single cloud in the sky but we definitely have the feeling of the beginning of autumn with the leaves on the acers just starting to turn gold and amber.
The garden enters another new phase now. The white fushias are at their glorious best and keep producing ever more dancing ballerina flowers.
The roses are out for what I was going to say is a second flush but really they haven’t stopped flowering all summer. They were hit hard by the recent rain but they keep sending out new rose buds and they’re going to be beautiful over the next few weeks.
The hydrangeas are still looking good, the paniculata limelight is right at its peak in September.
And the cosmos outside the barn just keep giving and giving, they’ll go on until they’re hit by the first frosts.
We still have the clouds of starry astrantia and now the fennel has reached its final dizzy heights.
Add the anemones which have been flowering for a week or so and there’s plenty going on as we head into our last month of the wedding season.
The new spring bulbs are being delivered this week so the planting for next year can begin (again!).
We have something beautiful flowering every month of the summer wedding season here at Ever After so you can pick the month you love the most and be sure that the garden will be out in force to celebrate your day in best English Garden Wedding style.
