From Gardening Don'ts (1913) by M.C. 19

DON’T forget the value
of a background for
your flowers. How lovely is
a grass bowling green, with
a little brick wall surrounding
it on three sides, at the foot
of which are daffodils and
scillas and their successors ;
while from the top of the wall
rock plants tumble : arabis
and aubretias, and, later, rock
roses, lythospermums, ver-
onica, and endless others.
