planting for the seasons in my french country garden

A couple of years ago we created new flower beds in front of our house, first bordering the terrace and then the parterres centre stage,  and I was pleased to be able to ask for advice and ideas from my amazing and knowledgeable readers.  You can see their suggestions here and here.    I’m sometimes asked about how to maintain garden interest through the seasons , and while I don’t claim to be an expert, I’m happy to share what works here in Normandy.
