The Last Day of August in my Garden

"When summer gathers up her robes of glory,

and like a dream of beauty glides away."
- Sarah Helen Power Whitman

We have had some beautiful weather over the last few days and I finally ventured outside into the garden again. It is wonderful to walk around looking at what is new when I haven't visited it in what seems ages. Flowers have given way to berries and seed heads and there are some other flowers that are only just coming into their own, lots of things have been late to bloom this year.

So in the warm sunshine and with three cats following me as I walked. . . I took these photos.

I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
- Edna St. Vincent Millay

Now in our country we are approaching the monsoon season. Soon we will get lots and lots of rain and there are not many flowers at this time of the year..
Anyway, it's nice to see those lovely flowers in your garden. May I know what's the name of the flowers in the first photo. I just love the colour of the flower :)

Hi TK, good to see you. :-)

I am not really sure what the flower is but I think it is some sort of Aster maybe? It is a beautiful colour though isn't it!
