A whole border full of these lovely coneflowers (echinacea?) with a wispy grass background. The bees were buzzing merrily. Mum has some of these in her garden at the moment but having seen them in a swathe like this, we both agree, she needs some more for better effect next year.
This fiery spikey dahlia was right outside the coffee shop - where I had chocolate cake for breakfast! Mmmmmm, naughty!
These lovely bright rudbeckias were just calling out for a photo session. Unfortunately, they are quite leggy creatures so were badly affected by the wind. This is about the only one that was presentable :)
And my favourite shot of the whole day - a lovely buttery yellow ball of loveliness adorned by her very own sparkles, courtesy of the UK summer :)
