Favourite Front Gardens (13)


We’ve been a bit slow on Fave Front Gardens this year – presumably the weather’s not really inspired people as much as usual. But Benedict told me about one in King George Street which is as lovely as it is simple. He sent me these pics to prove it.

There are a few perennials in there, but for the show, they’ve concentrated on just a couple of annuals – big, floppy poppies and sweet peas, which act as a very neat ‘net curtain.’ A profusion of summer, to remind us that yes, we did actually get a bit of one…
