Quessoy arboretum, afternoon.

Amongst the samey overcooked foliage of the season and the river's low-running sludginess, a bed of hydrangeas, blues and whites, and purple heathers flowering makes a welcome splash of colour.

I really enjoyed the bright blue/purple/pink hydrangeas that were all over Wales. (We visited Pembrokeshire last week.) Like you, I'm finding the landscape at home rather "samey" and "overcooked." (Wonderful description.)

I remember a piece that you wrote last August -- about not liking this time of year very much. I so agree. August always seems so SPENT, really.
