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.

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.
