I have been looking for inspiration in other people's gardens. I fell in love with these purple borders and window boxes in Corpus Christi College, Cambridge when I was there on Saturday evening - those tall dark salvia! I must also tell you that there was a garden room in the Master's Lodge swathed in a pale blue climber. The flowers cascaded down from the ceiling beams in a magical way. I am not sure what the plant was - a small Clematis? Solanum? Ipomoea? I wish I had asked for permission to take a photo but I was on my best behaviour at the time.
