Lost and Found

It's now nearly the end of August, and the front garden - formerly an oasis of cottage flowers, has given up many of it's secrets to us.

We cleared much of the tree like structures (most of it still to be cut into manageable sizes!) and left the cleared ground to see what came up. We've not been disappointed! 

the magnificent Lupin - dormant for over 30 years?

A sunflower - probably dropped by a bird!

looks like this sunflower was selected for abundance of seed rather than size of flower
