Thought I would enter one of these photos. I am putting 2 up so I can see the pics side by side but then I will delete one of them in the next day or so.

Just to confuse everyone, one has already been deleted!

Both are very nice, like the first one best. We always seem to be looking for colour in our gardens but dosen't white come up so well. 8)

I was leaning towards the first one also MrW. No car in the background (one of the perks of living on a busy road :roll: )

oooh looks lovely, but I have to say those pansies look a lot like petunias in the photo. :shock:

I like the lawn as it is - it suits the style of the edging. Can you call a lawn 'rustic'?

I understood what you meant Bubba, and in a different setting would probably have thought the same thing.

To be honest I didn't even notice the lawn initially, but then, I didn't notice that they'd been called pansies, either. :lol:

SL, I love the Petunias... white flowers always stand out.

PS The poppy seeds are just up... I hope I wasn't too early planting them.
Don't be afraid to colour outside the lines.
