Um, no it’s not!

For some tension-releasing laughs (I’m getting tired of funny animal videos myself), I’m sharing some truly ridiculous gardens I found on a bogus gardening website of non-English-speaking origin, but that’s all I know about it. (I won’t give them a link.)

These fussy, intensely high-maintenance ideas are a bizarre contrast to today’s advice, which is all about working with nature to create gardens that are close to self-sustaining, and look relatively natural.

Get a load of these “inspiring” gardens from somewhere. They remind us of the bad old days of gardening styles and practices.

“This creation” is a good term for it.

SO natural-looking!

Do those look like perennials to YOU?

This one isn’t ugly, but it’s not my idea of small.
