Cottage garden

This is a rectangular border, under the front room window.It has some overwintered plants which are geraniums (three), hardy bush fuschia's (two,purple/white, and pink/white), two foxgloves in the second year of growth, two snapdragon plants, one moved weed with flower buds (unknown name), and one pink flowered heather.Its companion died over the winter.
I have planted some seeds in between the hardy plants, and summer bulbs.From memory there are snapdragons, pink candytuft, delphiniums, and some fernyleaved blue flowers that seed loads once grown.
The idea is a mixture of traditional flowers, self seeding to form drifts of colours.
