Other people’s gardens are often a delight to view and are a great source of ideas to implement in your own garden. My sister’s garden (pictured above) is no exception.

A beautiful red urn nestled amongst the greenery, and beside a small Buddha, adds colour to this courtyard garden.

The Euphorbia Lipstick, also known as the ‘crown of thorns’, looks stunning with its hot pink blooms and large green leaves. Flowering for most of the year, this euphorbia is a nice addition to any garden.

Growing happily in a pot, this hydrangea has just produced a pretty light pink bloom, which seems at first glance to be an artificial silk flower. On the same plant is an older bloom which is changing into pretty autumn colours.

Violas, which flower in a wide range of colours, have a soft, old fashioned look that complements this large basket.

A very hardy hedging plant which tolerates dry periods, the duranta has been trimmed as a hedge behind this decorative garden seat.
