As I've only just joined & live in SW France I thought I'd add a few photos of my garden .
Camelia beside patio
Summer clematis on patio trellis
Clematis Montana rambling along side fence
Euphorbia polychroma loves life here but didn't seem to thrive in the UK
My husband's pottagère & view to our poplars at the end of the back garden
Summer clematis climbing along a side fence
Juvenile windbreak of photinias & variegated shrubs overlooking fields up to next village
Old well in front garden planted with arum lilies & aquilegias
Magnolia stellata in front garden
I particularly like this Albezia tree because the flowers remind me of the 'clock' dandelions we blew as children but these flowers are more delicate & the palest shades of pink. Never seen them in the UK. Twice tried to grow a Chocolate Albezia (has gorgeous aubergine coloured leaves) but they both died. Too expensive here to keep buying more.
Buddleia which I grew from a cutting overlooking evening sunflowers
Buddleia with butterfly
Campsis tree beside rear patio
Container shrubs & hanging baskets on rear patio
