It did rain yesterday, so it looks a bit fresher today. The colours come and go, the long border, which is 20m x 2m, was quite yellow and red with Lychnis Chalcedonica, Monarda Cambridge Scarlet and Lysimachia Punctata, has changed colour and will soon be full of white phlox and yellow rudbeckias. In June it was more pink with Albertine roses and pink geraniums. In the autumn there will be pink and purple Michaelmas daisies.
I don't ban any colours, I like orange with purples, reds and blues, zingy. Never looks as bright in the photos as it does in real life.
