The ‘Hot’ border

At the height of summer, crimsons mix with vivid pinks and golds as gaillardias, penstemons, geraniums and dianthus are all at their best. Meanwhile, the apple cordons are ripening in the sun along the wall, and the butterfly sways gently with the breeze. Why not pause a while on one of the benches and enjoy the colours and scents.
