from the website: "This bank has been planted up with lovely sun-loving, drought-loving perennials. The gardeners have stuck to only six different plants, and have repeated them over and over again in drifting lines. They could have crowded the space with all sorts of plants of all sorts of heights, but instead they have chosen to weave a pattern on the bank that pulls you up short."
Stunning sunset. This vision just seems to say....."bask in my warmth and peace for a moment...relax."
