lovely letterboxes

This week the roses have started to put out their second flush of flowers, especially the hybrid musks and David Austin roses, and the high season perennials are in full swing.  Some of the more joyful, meadowy half hardy annuals like coreopsis and tall tagetes are coming into their own, and the walls of sweet peas just keep on billowing.  We have also been packing some seriously lovely flowers into our letterbox gifts, including exquisite little annual phlox 'sugar stars' and airy feathery panicum grass.  It is such a treat to do it.
