Deryn's Garden in September

In early September spring arrives in a riot of colour when the wisteria bursts into bloom and the buds on the stems of the Forest Pansy tree create a halo of mauve.

Most of the jonquil bulbs have already finished flowering but the freesias perfume the air and daffodil, ranunculus, iris and anemone create a colourful show in the garden beds.

It's too early for most of my roses to flower, except for the tea roses which bloom all through winter.

I hope that you enjoy these photographs, taken by my friend Jane Birman.
