The Front Lines of the Garden

I'm pretty sure that there is something special in your garden.
And without a doubt - there is one special plant which will identify as the masterpiece,
A showcase of the whole garden.
That will be the "Tree of Life" in your Garden of  Eden.
Likewise, these are the ones like that..
The only issue is that
I have too many of these showpieces that they all compete for attention.
In a manner of speaking - hot red shouting for attention..
with bleeding hearts screaming her heart out.
What more in the making of putting a garden in a perspective.
There are no rules when it comes to gardening in my garden.

I would say, gardening is all about feeling.
What do you feel inside of you when you are in your garden.
What intrigue you? Excites you?
These attracts Sunbirds,
there is never a dull moment when I hear the flutters and the squeaky calls,
the flutters and the garden wildlife riots when life exploding with joy in my garden.

Yes, its all about feeling.
I'm feeling alive when blooms explodes daily in my garden.
Vines, plants and creepers fight a war of dominance to get the best light.
It is indeed the Front Lines of the Battle.

I can see it..
Do you?

The Green Connection - Part 2

I doubt that many gardener's will just settled for just green.
I'm pretty sure there is no such thing: Green.
From a gardener's point of view that is:
He (or more likely she) will see colours like:
Apple, Lime, Asparagus, Ferns, Honey Dew, Mint, Olive, Pear, Jade...
And a host of others which clearly blurs the definition in perfect context.

Mine However...
You can invent to call whatever means necessary to identify them...
There is such joy however to identify them by their species names..
And variegated plants are just like a pinch of salt..
Adding taste to the existing colours and shades of green.

Don't you agree?
