August Flowers

I'm still in the middle of picking blackberries in my patch.  We made more than four gallons of jam last night and two pies.  For the first time this year, I am making jam with bought pectin which means I don't have to use as much sugar and I don't need to cook it so long.

The flowers I picked for a bouquet this morning are:

beebalm-  still OK but almost gone by
phlox- it has just come in
yellow coneflower (Rudbeckia laciniata)
Hydrangea paniculata (Kyushu and Quick Fire)
Nepeta siberica
