Lovely Chicky - and what a success that hydrangea is

I needed something to give height in the middle of that border, and I'd grown Morning Glories (mixed) for some pots for the terrace, so they were the perfect temporary filler for that spot

Good morning KEF 

I've got a BBQ lunch to go to - a young person I used to work with has grown up and now lives with support in a complex of residential bungalows - she's kept in touch with me and they're having an open day - her family can't make it as her twin sister has had a baby in the last few days, so I've been asked to go along for a couple of hours 

Hope the weather picks up

I thought I'd post some pics of the very new front border.  It was only dug out of the lawn this March so still quite bare, but I'm pleased with the way the colours are working.


I've also got an Echinops I bought from Woottens the other day to replace the Morning Glories when they finish, a purple Salvia greggii to go in front of the paler achillea, and an Echinacea purpurea Magnus and Aster frikartii Monch to fit in somewhere. 

 Ignore the lawn - restoration still in progress.
