Focal point!!

Had a good day out in the garden planting out some of my seedlings.  I have put this urn in the border that surrounds the pond to try and create a focal point – not very good at this design stuff.  The reddy/burgandy leaves are Lobelia Cardinalis, I am hoping that they will provide a good contrast with the urn and they pick up on the burgandy tinges in the Salvia.

 The scrubby mess in the background is a large shrub I need to dig up but I’m going to have to use a mattock to get through the roots.
