Front border

Front border

Love this border at this time of year. Not showing up very well but packed with alliums, foxgloves paeony and poppies. Lavender will follow and will spot plant with some summer bedding to give interest through to autumn.

YES! A very old favourite - we both fell in love with it many years a go! Is this your original plant Pops? I passed mine to my Mum when we moved house... Must get one for this house!

Don't think it's the original one Petal it would be around 20 yrs.! I have two now, one in back garden more shady it comes out much later which means I get twice as long in flower ?
