What is the definition of a 'garden'?
More broadly I will ask, "What is YOUR definition of a garden?" (Then we don't have to argue about who is correct.) I would expect multiple slants in definition, various shades of grey.
I am inspired to ask the question thanks to Woody's post about her readings, but I didn't want to muddy her post, and I'm hoping for participation from regulars and lurkers alike.
So how do you immediately know something is intended to be a garden when you see it? What defines it? If you want, you can expand on the concept and add what you think makes for a successful garden.
Hey, it's been raining all day here, I'm looking for a distraction from all the indoor chores I should be doing, so I hope you'll give it some thought and play along.
