Great banner Dirt!

So at the risk of Asacide, I can confirm from personal experience that the banner's title is unequivocally true.

From what I understand, there are many types of gardenes...rock gardens, Japanese, cottage, formal, and I'd run out of e-ink before I finished the list.

I've christened Dirt's garden type as MMAyhem. Use your imagination thinking of the various plants throwing elbows, knees, fists...pushing up against one another for space and supremacy. Some getting relocated for various reasons (another new term: plant tetris). It's amazing to watch. And a wonderful place to live.

Perhaps a better description I've given to her gardens is "fireworks in slow motion". Stop by if you're ever in northern Utah. They're worth seeing.

Great banner, Dirt. Wish there were enough space in a single picture to do your art justice!

This is fun: The thread "Asa's former lawn...or (better) Dirt's current gardens" in Garden Photos forum

I'm late to the appreciation party, but it allowed me to read the glowing and entertaining comments before writing mine. Great composition within the narrow format. It leads the eye and rewards the viewer for the trip. I tip my hat to you. Thumbs up
