Late summer flowers

A few photos of flowers blooming in our late summer garden. This is the garden is in its best stage. It feels like it’s finally gotten started – I wish I could keep gardening for another few months! I try not to think about the fact that today someone stumbled across my blog by entering the phrase “first frost calgary” into a search engine! The days are still warm enough to ignore that and to focus instead on documenting this gorgeous time of year that we all have in mind during those other months of planting seeds, choosing perennials, leafing through gardening books and catalogues and dreaming of next year’s garden.

Top: Purple coneflower. Below: Clover, purple annual (can never remember the name of this one!), sunflower, pink nasturtiums, zucchini flower, orange nasturtium with zinnia and daylily leaves in the background, blue flax, pink cosmos.
