I like the contrasting surfaces but not gravel because of Charlie. I also like the trelliswork on the right-hand wall. Chairs with cushions around brazier in small urban garden, clipped box balls, Mespilus germanica
I feel I need to invest in Annabelle Hydrangeas, purely because of their name. Garden border of Hydrangea Annabelle with Agapanthus, Salvia 'Mainacht' and Echinops ritro (globe thistle) What a beautiful combination!
