Truth in Gardening
We've all admitted to cropping scenes to exclude the undeadheaded, dying, not thriving, weed ridden, bare dirt parts of the garden. My grandmother swore that there was no such thing as a perfect garden and trying to get "there" was a futile waste of energy. Isn't kind of a relief to agree??
I've had some lurkers who know me say that to see our pics is sometimes a total discouragement, since "my garden could never look like the pictures." Can we give these folks some comfort, and our fellow Idyllers some comfort, by posting less than perfect pics just for fun?
I'll start -- what is supposed to be the Moon Garden phase of the major side garden looks something like a huge pity pile. I can't blame not deadheading 4' tall plants nor cleaning the birdbath on my recovery LOL.
