Do I need a border ?

Scrappy Summer #2 – Greek Cross  

My Greek cross blocks are all sewn together into rows. Now, do I need borders? The blocks finish 9″ so right now the quilt top would finish 36″ x 45″. Since I am only making a wall hanging the size is fine. Will adding borders add to the overall look or not? What do you think?

Here are a couple of photos of my garden. The little pink ones are called Bee Balm and the other is a type of lily. I am not sure what species the previous owners planted but I am thinking they are either Asiatic or Tiger lily.
