Every year I admire this combination of a red rose and a Hydrangea petiolaris, along a fence in a front garden. Why grow one climber, when you can plant two?
This display, in the walled garden at Painshill Park, has a touch of Great Dixter about it, no? Very cute.
There are some stunning pots outside the Holbourne Museum in Bath at the moment. They’re huge and stuffed with all kinds of delights, including cerinthe, verbenas, sweet peas and sunflowers (I think they’re ‘Vanilla Ice‘). Amazingly, they seem to be supported by a single bamboo stake. Definitely inspiration for next year.
