Flower Report for August 7, 2014

The garden beds are at their fullest and most colourful as the summer display continues at its peak. The sunshine and warm weather has been ideal for the rose garden and it continues to get rave reviews with its abundance of colour and fragrance. Each week the Dahlias draw more attention as they continue to grow by leaps and bounds and add more blooms of all shapes and sizes. The perennial borders also dazzle with a vast array of exceptional colours, forms and textures to further enhance the visual feast. If you want the full summer colour extravaganza, now is a great time to visit.
