I like everything everywhere, all at once. I made an impulse buy last week and got some mini white carnations (because they looked nice and I love the smell). Now I've put them by some magnificent white creeping stuff and am beginning to think I've mad a mistake - it's a bit boring. There's room for more plants so I'll probably throw in a heap of alyssum of all different shades, or maybe something else that grows riotous.
Must admit though, if I have a choice of plants in the garden centre I'm drawn to deep reds. I'm wary of mixing red and white though, for fear of being told off. My Mother in Law was a nurse and when she first started work she was given a rocket for putting red and white flowers in a vase together. Apparently it's bad luck. I wasn't allowed to have red and white flowers for my wedding, but yellow and white as nice.
...actually I wasn't allowed to have green bridesmaid dresses. My mother thought that was bad luck!
I like the colours in your border fidget.
