Last of the summer days?

I feel the gradual steps towards autumn on its way. Flowers going over, step one, pumpkins ripening, step two and so it goes.

However, gardens on day trips are still a flurry of flowers and a buzz of bees. There's still plenty happening and I'm desperately hoping for the languor of an Indian Summer in September. 

The pictures are from one of my closest National Trust properties, Dunham Massey. I wholly recommend for its stunning gardens.
