Greenwich Park in August

There are many wonderful things to see in Greenwich, not least the Flower Garden in Greenwich Park. It changes throughout the year, and I wonder just how much work goes into maintaining the garden so that visitors can enjoy different flowers depending on the season.

Right now there are glorious sunflowers reaching for the sky, white hydrangeas, luminous gladioli and dahlias, yellow red hot pokers, foxgloves, statice flowers, sedums, and (I think) daylilies.

But hurry – the leaves on the trees are already telling us that autumn is on its way!
