Looks a little country...
A few flowers (some wild) helps make it a better. It's not up to city standards of beauty, but it works for me. The more natural look I can get into this place, the more comfortable I am in it!
Here is another view of the same area. The pots with red salvia are cheap plastic, spray painted. There is a purple button flower that you can't see and some wild salsify. Later, there should be tiny mallow flowers and maybe something else that hasn't peeped up yet.
The area isn't finished yet and may never be! I am thinking of putting in a couple of gooseberry bushes by the fence. What do you think?
