Love the colours!

This was my new fav colour combo when I left Canada in the spring/early summer.  I just love it. And I am constantly thinking about colour schemes for our guest rooms, perhaps this could be one of them.

It includes Berberis ‘Royal Burgundy’,

Hakonechloa ‘Albo Striata’,

and this new lovely sedum that I purchased this spring, of course I can’t remember the name, and my garden journal is sitting safely at home on the kitchen island, instead of in Barbados where I might need it. But any blue sedum will do.

Do you love it?

That magical hour, when everything  (including me) looks so much better in the garden, no harsh glare, just flattering shadows.

Compare these two pictures of the same spot in my garden,

this one was taken during the harsh light of the day,

And then the magic hour,

wait, do you need another look at it,

So far, I am pretty happy with the way this section of the garden has turned out, however there is always room for improvement.

So far, I have Hakonechloa macro ‘Albo striata’, Hosta ‘White Feather’, Berberis ‘Royal Cloak’, a mini variegated bamboo, name unknown (but planted in a pot, just in case), Regale lily, Sedum sieboldii,  self seeded foxglove and an Anchusa, also unknown variety.

What do you think it needs?
