True gardeners know that their spaces are never really finished. They are in a constant state of flux. Plants sometimes grow larger than the nursery tags lead us to believe, voles devastate a beautiful bed of hostas, an heirloom Japanese maple falls prey to an unpredicted late-season frost and so on.
Another scenario, if we are being honest with ourselves, is that our tastes simply change; our gardens become stagnant and in need of an update. If this describes your garden, consider moving slightly outside your comfort zone by adding an artistic edge. Embrace a bit of the industrial.
“Noted” items are particularly good finds from my daily reading which I share via all my social media accounts.
