From the palest blush, soft cool primrose, sulphurous, acid, gaudy, bright, golden, and adorning the garden right the way through the year – this is a richly diverse palette and can be used to many an effect. I’ve been reading Gertrude Jekyll’s book on colour schemes in the flower garden and she is extraordinarily precise, intuitive, inventive, when describing both flower and foliage and combining them in the border. Can’t recommend it enough – I should add in some of her diagrams and plans when I have a moment. In the meantime, bask in that reflected sunshine.
