August colour in Emma’s garden

Orange Crocosmia glows against the green foliage

The same orange is repeated in the Nasturtiums at the rear

Echinops contrasts in a moody humming blue

Pure sky blue of the Geranium

Sophisticated velvet blue of the Sweet Pea

Imagine the undersides of these leaves are nearly black against the shocking pink flower

By experimenting in my own garden, I have grown to love strong coloured flowers amongst the largely green structural planting.  They add excitment and mark the seasons.
