Lots of colour in my cottage-style garden this Summer. I tend to mix perennials, annuals, veg, herbs and fruit together around the garden, using pots and planting them together in the flower beds/borders. It tends to work well. Here's a little snapshot of what's looking bright and cheerful this month...
|L-R: Shasta Daisy, Achillea 'Terracotta', Hydrangea, Astrantia major 'Primadonna'.|
|L-R: Astilbe Fanal, Begonia, Self-fertilizing Apple Tree, Dianthus.|
|L-R: Nemesia, unknown (can't remember) perennial, Hebe shrub, unknown (can't remember) perennial.|
|L-R: Echinacea (I think), Calendula, hoverfly on Lavender, Asiatic Lily Red Joy.|
|A window-box planted up with annuals (fuschia, dianthus, lobelia, etc) and hung on a painted fence-panel to brighten up a seating area.|
