My plectranthus Mona lavender has really come into its own! Just look at all of those flowers.
I've got a little bud vase inside and picked a few. It made me realise something I hadn't noticed - the "face" of the flowers is beautifully patterned. You just can't see those details from above.
My oakleaf hydrangeas are also looking lovely. They put out a second flush of flowers mid-summer and they're starting to colour up beautifully.
I'm also realising this year the value in having autumn-flowering plants. I've started to notice so many bees on my salvia, basil, gaura and the last of the lavender. They probably appreciate this last feast before winter.
