Top to bottom: lavender, morning-glory, plumbago and bougainvillea. All already here when I bought the house nine years ago; all very good for covering up unsightly sheds, unattractive wide white PVC pipes, falling-down fences, and next door's ugly Dodgy Brothers extensions. And all what my Scottish grandma would have called common as muck. They're very pretty in their full effect, but I've never looked at any of them so closely before.
And the Gestalt of the Garden is rather good at this time of year. Summer Blues, I call it.
