Like in any relationship, a good loving healthy foundation and structure is necessary in the garden for beautiful growth and blooms.  Before planning your planting, get to know your soil, sun/shade areas, and moisture levels.  Set your plants up for a healthy bond with the Earth in the right spot.  Paint out your colours, blooming schedules, and spacial heights on paper first.  Take care of them, adore them, and let them seed, ensuring their future dreams come true.  Leave your flowers in the ground, and bring your paints and chair out into the garden for expressions of gratitude.  Carve out a space for appreciating the garden.  Allow the inspiration to translate into your work, passions, pleasures, and dreams.  The evolution of a garden is a reflection of your soul.  Nurture both for a healthy, loving life.
