The flowering season here seems varies a lot. In most years the floral display lasts for a long time from June until August or September..this year however it was over in a flash, another casualty of an exceptionally hot, dry summer.
Hopefull next spring it will reappear.
"Hope is like a harebell trembling from its birth,
Love is like a rose the joy of all the earth,
Faith is like a lily lifted high and white."
