On a recent trip to Mayfair, Central London, I could not help but notice how grey everywhere seemed without trees, well the trees are still here of course but without thier leaves, they tend to blend into the grey concrete skyscrapers.

I love the way the bright orange, terracotta pots pull in the colour of the 2nd floor brickwork. Then closely replicated in the salmon flushed cyclamen, finished off with some deep green foliage, in the form of emerald green trailing Ivies and standard Lollipop Bay trees.
