A garden can be beautiful. A garden can be planted with a creative spirit, using flowers as crayons to colour a space. I want to plant and enjoy my garden in this spirit.
I see neighbours who meticulously maintain their outdoor spaces. They even include a plant or two (maybe three!). Their houses and yards are tidy and look good. But, in my opinion, their yards could be and offer so much more.
People are entitled to their own ideas about their own gardens, of course. I know that I want mine to be a lovely, colourful and soothing place. I can pretty much guarantee that it will not be meticulously maintained. I will really try to make it beautiful.
