In the garden today

Monarda 'Gardenview Scarlet'  - my favourite of the reds.

The slightly shadier end of the main border: Nepeta kubanica and Persicaria amplexicaulis 'Dikke Floskes' are conspicuous.

Dahlia 'Twynings Revel'

Too many reds but they are too beautiful to pull out.

An old, very hardy favourite: an apricot Gladiolus dalenii or primitive hybrid, originally from Cotswold Garden Flowers.

Panicum 'Frosted Explosion', with Monarda 'Prarienacht'

In the border alongside the drive: Lythrum virgatum 'Dropmore Purple', Helenium 'Sahin's Early Flowerer', et al.

The drive border in late afternoon: the tall Dahlia is 'Night Queen', a serendipitous garden centre package purchase.

Agastache pringlei comes to life in evening light.
