They are quite heavy and these needed support after heavy rain.

Sitting outside at dusk, sniffing this lovely little Cyclamen cilicium. The fragrance is honeyed with a hint of coconut.

Grab your shades~ Rosa 'The Brownie Rose' has been flushed with flowers throughout summer in the Rose Garden . Delicious citrus scent too.

They like a good soil with lots of organic matter, maybe try them in a pot? They're not reliably hardy so if potted you can move them to shelter during winter.

Red-backed, white star-shaped candy flowers which open at dusk to perfume the air with a beautiful sweet fragrance~ Zaluzianskya ovata (night phlox).

So much summer colour still around but autumn flowering plants are responding to the cooler nights. This tiny Cyclamen mirabile popped up almost unnoticed. Glad to see back to one hour this week.
