My gardening style is a reflection of who I am. It's natural. It’s imperfect. You will find as much of an appreciation for greens and mosses as for more showy colours and plants. You won't find checkerboard patterns and right angles but rather plants spilling into one another, but don't be fooled into thinking there is no design.
I patiently take a test-and-optimize approach since I am bound to create as many failures as successes.
I will forever be a student in the garden.

WEED WAR - who would win?
How about this for a plan to get rid of all of the Creeping Bellflower in my front garden:
I pit it against another well-suited aggressive plant that I like better, like Obedient Plant (left). Since the bed is edged all of the way around we could consider it a cage match...
In a war between these aggressive beauties, who would win?
Lay down your bets.
