"A painter or an architect thinks nothing of ripping up a sketch, pulling out a clean white sheet or painting over a canvas, and starting again. It's not so easy in a garden; even the feeblest shrub or most rampant groundcover seems to cry out, 'Love me; keep me alive!'" Link.

Wow, Chuck, thanks for that link. A great essay and a delightful link therein (to the Dillon garden)!

Interesting...however, the only way I'll ever "start over" with my garden is if I move!
