Flower Meadow

A flower meadow in Milton Country Park?  Not quite.  Just two fairly small flower beds planted with an abundance of flowering annuals which reached their very colourful peak during July.

I talk about the garden reaching its peak in July, but in reality, it is more of a ridge than a peak.  As these pictures show, by the beginning of July, the beds were very colourful, but predominantly white, with individual highlights of blue and purple.

As the month progressed, the density of the flowers increased and more pink and red appeared in the mix.

Finally, by the beginning of August, the bed becomes predominantly yellow with barely any white blossom at all:

After that, the display steadily declined as the flowers faded and died.
