this is also so pretty, you must be really pleased with the way it has come together. sometimes I find that what you think will not look right does and vice versa.

So much colour in the borders, it's lovely. I always think that the common pot Marigold is snobbishly looked down on, but it brings so much colour to the garden and is such a happy plant!

Thanks both.
There's no planning as to colour schemes,(nature doesn't bother).The only plan was that it was supposed to be set up primarily for late summer/autumn.That didn't work.
The marigold seeds everywhere and will form a large plant in a tiny crack in the paving.

My kind of garden. Lots of colour and little room for weeds to establish.

Oh that's my way as well, you have a lovely garden, I like to think I'm planning but mother nature always gets the better of me, I don't like to see flowers on parade in my own garden so I appreciate what she does for me, lol..
