After your annuals have put on a show this year (and I am sure they will), think about adding some shrubs in the autumn or next spring ready to look amazing next year. Depending on your soil and position, things such as lavenders, hebe's, grasses etc which will give structure in winter and perennials such as geraniums, oriental poppies and others that will look better year on year.
Don't forget, that even if your garden looks amazing for a couple of years, it will be changing all the time, thats nature. Things will outgrow their original position, will self-seed, will need dividing.
