Perfect planting

Much of my free time this spring has been spent gardening at our villa and I have put in a lot of effort in planning and planting a large new flower bed. Carefully choosing drought-resistant shrubs and a "hot" colour scheme, I have high hopes that the results will be rewarding in a year or two. Maybe I should have just left it to nature... On a recent walk within a few hundred metres of my carefully planned bed, I came across this beautiful display. With buttercups, wild garlic and blue hairbells, this was just perfectly planned.
