It is a wet Monday morning here and the flowers have taken a bashing.  Roses are flowering again and dahlias are in full flow. The petals of the roses are slightly bruised.

There is Lark Ascending, Gertrude Jekyll and an unknown very pale pink, almost white rose. It has a delicious rose scent and a delicate appearance which is endearing but it does seem to drop its petals rather quickly.

I have added Sanguisorba as contrast to the soft petals and because I love them. The scent is room filling and rather wonderful. 

Then there are the tiny dahlias. I have picked the small dark pom-poms and Arabian Night. There is a couple of the pink Cosmos and Sanguisorba. A miniature bunch suited to the tiny vase which belonged to Heather, much missed.  

We needed the rain.  So if you have a bunch of flowers to pick in your garden why not bring them inside and share the image with Cathy the host of this meme.  https://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com   Be sure to send a link back to her site.  Have a good week.
