Here are some photos of my little front garden.
It isn’t big but I try to make it look interesting :)

It faces east and gets sunshine from around 6 a.m. until 1 p.m. so it doesn’t do too badly :)

(Don’t notice the windowsill lol It’s still waiting to be painted and I think it will have to wait a bit longer too)

Impatiens :-

Begonia semperflorens :-

Limnanthes douglasii :-

Fuchsia Mrs Popple, Astrantia major, Pyracantha coccinea with berries forming, Thuja occidentalis :-

Cupressus macrocarpa Gold Crest :-

I’ve just bought a nice new Heuchera which I’m going to plant there as well (when I can get around to it !)

It looks very nice! The size of the garden doesn't matter when it's full of lovely colour like yours!!

You have really packed in lots of flowers, no weeds can grow there.

What a lovely bright display that is. You must be very pleased with it.

It gets better every year. I like the red and white fuchsia.
I think you give your road a public service - it must cheer up all the neighbours who go past.

What a wonderful array of colour Hywel that golden Cypress has done well looks great. I recall you first planting it.

Very cheerful display. I hope you will find a spot there for your new heuchera, Hywel. The garden looks so full:=)
Love the Limnanthes douglasii hanging over the edge. Looks really lovely with the orange nasturtium. I have to find some seeds for next year.
