The flower of midsummer

We spent midsummer’s day in the grounds of Kingston Bagpuize house, where the village fete was in full swing.

And there among the borders we spotted the starry blooms of St John’s Wort; flowering with perfect timing on 24 June, the feast of St John.

The plants will continue to flower throughout the summer months, each one giving way to a bright rosy berry.
