This is just one border at Winsford Walled Garden in Devon and you're walking right through the middle of it! You can't even see the sides!

Lovely shades of green with the occasional spikes of colour.

The shot was taken very late in the year and the summer colour is all but exhausted while the plants are on the threshold of their autumnal phase. On the left is a black pittosporum which provides year-round colour. Immediately above it you can just make out the flower spikes of the cordyline, (left-most strap leaves). They look like mini boats and they are full of sugar-sap when they first come out for the humming birds - of which there are a shortage in the UK! The 'green tree' to the right of the red flowers is another evergreen pittosporum which turns bright yellow throughout the winter.

Red flower is crocosmia (montbretia) right?

C. 'lucifer' I believe. It's located behind the tree to the right so it flowers later than normal and it and this view have since moved/changed dramatically. For example, the phormium nearest path grew to 10ft and has since been moved 40 ft to the rear of the left border . You can view it happening on my web site - simply type 'moving' in my site's search box.

Doesn't this just say "come for a quiet moment of peace"
