The joy of front gardens
I have the best fun wondering how colour can perform different functions in different places. In this front garden I had ripped out the hedge, and encouraged the garden’s owners to sprinkle some joy with a burst of colourful bulbs which could be enjoyed by all. The extraordinary thing was that they found they lost no privacy by getting rid of the screening hedge: the focus of passers-by is purely on the colour-combinations that I introduce each year. Conversations happen, tips are shared, friends are made - that’s the joy of front gardens.
