Skyline

Alchemilla collapsing in clumps

Strong Blue agapanthus unpeeling their paper cases

Burgundy daylilies and Polygonum anchor light white Epilobium

And apples swell.

Washed out ghosts of valerian break the skyline haze of Molinias,

linear grasses leaning off vertical.

‘Lucifer’ punches through the fading Phlomis

A dazzled jungle

Crambe and Geraniums climb the dazzled jungle

Aeroplanes buzz

Four buzzards stack and swirl

beneath high sparse clouds

Orange and yellow

poppy and Phlomis, bleaching

Only strong psilostemon holding magenta
