How does your garden reflect your personality?
Think about it, have a look around. Does it?
Your garden may be only in its beginnings, but the designs you’ve put in, the plants you’re choosing, the foundations are what you’re after hey?
OK, what annoys you about your garden?
What about the gardens you’re attracted to? These ones may not be your way – but you love the look of them – do they reflect your partner or wannabe partner?
Our gardens can teach us more than just the nature of plant growth and what they can provide for us…
My garden is wild. A client came to buy some plants and looked around saying “Wow! It’s like herbs in their natural environment, a free range garden” I loved that-thank you Suzanne! (And it’s exactly how I home educate/unschool my children – reflection #1). It looks messy (reflection #2). It is messy (part of reflection #2).
I prefer my beds to be curved like nature (reflection #3) but have had to make straight linear beds in some cases (reflection #4 on my “domestication”) if they grow outside of their lines though… so be it (reflection #5, I tried, honest, but not meant to be!).
In so saying, I have more than several gardens and can express the different aspects of my personality in different gardens. I am lucky.
Now that you’ve looked at your own, look at those nearest and dearest to you (or complete strangers!). What does it say? What could you ascertain about their inner selves? Or inner desires?
