Aw, thanks!! We just kept on planting stuff in that border - it is very dry and in full sun! I just imagined it filled with colour (but not bedding plants as we don't have time to keep up with the planting of them)! That red rose has been growing up the cottage for years (20 or more) and when we came it was flowering way up on the ends of 12ft longs stems on the roof! We cut it hard back, a few people said it was such a shame we'd taken the old rose out! Well, it worked, we can now enjoy the flowers at eye level ;)

Thanks again, Mildred x

I had to smile, Silverbelle, at your comment . . . my Mum called today and I asked if she'd seen the flowers in the front border as she came through the gate . . . 'No'! She hadn't noticed! She keeps saying she needs new glasses, I am convinced LOL

I recognise many of the plants in the border, but what are the red ones under the foxgloves? Their colour is so vivid and matches the rose perfectly.

They are Sweet Williams, Silverbelle, they self seeded there . . . we had some elsewhere in the border last year - nice to see them again!
