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.

ANATOMY OF A MOON GARDEN - overview map
Finally, a map of the Moon Garden, where all flowers are white unless otherwise noted.
Given I put this map off all summer and fall I know there are gaps in it where I simply cannot recall (hence the need for the map) that I will have to fill in as plants return next year - or not. While annual Impatiens and Petunias are visible below I am not mapping them and will use them to fill in gaps amongst the perennials.
Green circle far left is Hemerocallis. Standard orange daylilies.
Smaller blue circle is Lily-of-the-Valley; was already here and has white blooms - perfect fit.
Large pale pink circle is Bishop's Goutweed; was already here with white variegated foliage - perfect fit.
Red hexagons far left are Peony. I divided an existing light pink one and add five new whites in the fall.
