Empty is Fine. Why be perfect?

Garden Design is not about having a perfect garden.

It's about having a beautiful garden without stress.  From every window a beautiful view.  

Doesn't matter if the terra cotta pot is planted.
There is a realm the perfect garden matters, pollinator habitat.
Oddly, my Garden Design formula based on historic gardens across Europe does, indeed, create maximum pollinator habitat.  And I thought I was going after beautiful + low maintenance.  Classic story of following your heart, while others belittle what you are doing, and gaining far more than anticipated.
Why does pollinator habitat matter?  Increasing pollinators increases crop yields up to 80%.
Have a seat, hold on, YOU are a pollinator too.  
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Pics at jobsite this week.  Have you ever really thought about the types of sex plants have?  Hilarious when compared to the snit about humans.
