The peace of a garden

How quickly the first term of school has flown by. It has been a busy time in our household. But it is the destruction, natural and manmade, in the wider world in the last three months that has left me overwhelmed and seeking shelter in my garden. I took some photos in the late afternoon sun on Friday, drawing breath and seeking some serenity! 
 Diaphanous diascia!
 French Delbard rose,'Camille Pissarro ...
 ... bathed ever so briefly in the warm light of a setting sun.
Nodding heads of the David Austin rose, 'Lichfield Angel'.
Pert prettiness of the lovely 'Jane McGrath' rose.
 Lipstick pink salvia, making a bold and saucy statement ...
... matched only by the drama of some hot red snapdragons!
But these dwarf, showy wannabes will soon be eclipsed by the brilliant autumn colour that is developing with Acer x freemanii 'Autumn Blaze'!

How's the serenity, eh?!
