My quest for a Hobbit garden

I’m trying to get a handle of making a real Hobbit garden in my front yard. However, I am totally overwhelmed with garden planning! All I know for sure is that I like hydrangeas, day lilies and my hollyhocks. I want tall perennials in the back and will probably keep annuals as my front borders. I have lots of Hosta in the backyard, but I don’t want them in the front. I would like a nice mixture of colors, but don’t want to limit myself to a specific pallet, as I like to select a different color every year for the annuals.

No wonder people have degrees in horticulture and get big bucks for garden designing. I will post photos as I try to get this done.
