The end of August

A mix of late-summer flowers and autumnal fruits, with hedge bindweed stealing the show.

Climbers like bryony and vetch are still hanging on, while persicaria, knotgrass, knapweed and the magically-named enchanter’s nightshade are in their prime.

Early traces of autumn include blackberries, rose hips, hazelnuts and dandelion clocks.
