    They're all gorgeous NG. I especially love the colour of the tithonia (or the orange flowers in the last photo, I'm not sure what they are) with the bells of Ireland, the combination looks really cheerful.

    Thank you. The flowers in the last one are dahlias (all this years grown from seed, a yellow decorative, an orange decorative and a fruit salad semi pom pom) and cosmos radiance (which you can't see) and pink double click cosmos.

    Canary creeper and freesia

    This weeks. There should have been some tithonia but during conditioning two caterpillars took a liking to them and started with the best ones first

    Zinnia, dahlia and helenium lollipop

    Gorgeous arrangements as always NG. I especially love the aster and tithonia combination.

    I know you didn't grow them, but the Chinese lanterns are so eye-catching too

    TY . The aster and tithonia is my fav. too and it is so simple and uses so little material. Just a shame that the asters all tend to come out at the same time.
