In my ebook Guess What’s in my Garden! I included a chapter that tries to answer the question: What is a Garden? Please understand that I am not a vegetable gardener. Rather, my gardens have been created around trees, shrubs, perennials, vines and the occasional annual. Depending on ones perspective, different answers present themselves.
Here is one perspective from the article.
“A garden is an outdoor art gallery. Every bed, every border, every pot is a natural painting, combining space, form, texture, and color, a reflection of our creativity. It is open or enclosed, formal or informal, wild or contained, native or exotic, defined or haphazard, themed or eclectic. It is a living expression of our unique personalities and taste.”
I plan to make this a regular Thursday offering for a few weeks to share other perspectives from that chapter. I would welcome your thoughts.
