Indeed great scenery. I must say that the garden has been arranged very meticulously and elegantly making good usage of space and plants. Especially the colour contrasts are very eye pleasing. In the first photo yellow and dark red combination used for roses looks very nice. Also the red and yellow combination at the back.

Maqsood sahib the design of the garden & the arrangement of plants reflects your great taste. Can you tell the names of the trees at the back shown in the second photo. They seem to be either Elm or Juniper trees?

"Right behind the roses is a pink Lagerstroemia ( not yet in bloom ) on its right the lush green is a grape wine and a black mulberry tree ( for autumn colours will put up photos some day ) . Behind the Lagerstroemia is Juniperus Macropoda and Juniperus Chinesis and the big one far right is Honey locust, Gleditsia triacanthos, It’s a thorny tree that blossoms when winter is about to end, the honey bees then descend on it like locusts from all over the valley thus the name."

Great to see Juniper Macropoda thriving in Chitral. This Juniper variety is indigenous to Ziarat where it's forest are rapidly disappearing owning to widespread cutting by local people and the timber mafia.
