I'd Rather Drive a Truck

Here we are, creeping through the week, and we've made it all the way to Wednesday! Cheers, cheers! Let's reward ourselves with a little Wednesday Choose and Defend.  Today I thought I'd ask you about your taste in landscaping. Not anything weird...actual landscaping!  So, say you had some land, and I know some of you do, and you were forced to come up with a plan...what do you prefer? Choose and Defend from these two choices...

Formal Garden
OR

Informal Garden


What do you say?  Thought I'd get this one out here before everyone forgot what flowers look like for the winter :) Can't wait to see how you Choose and Defend! Thx.

I vote for informal. Wild gardens without the wild look effortless, even though I know they're not. Formal gardens are nice, but I can't help but think of all the money it takes to maintain them.

I also vote for informal garden! Because I believe the best gardens are works in progress that evolve over time. As each year comes, so do more plants... to fill in the spaces until they cover everything! I picture them with additions from children and friends who know how much you love plants and flowers...
making a garden of memories as much as beauty.

I likely don't even need to vote, if you know me, but yes, informal garden. Nature!

Formal. I need the neatness and organization of it.

Informal all the way. I don't need no stinkin' uppity garden thinkin' it's better than me.

3GK: I haven't done a great deal of gardening, but I imagine there is some money involved in maintaining a really nice one. Good point. One for Informal Garden.

Silly: Aw! I love the way you think. In that way, your whole life is like a lovely wild garden, isn't it. Two for Informal Garden.

NoRegrets: Our nature girl! Three for Informal Garden.

MrManuel: Nice! There is something beautiful in any kind of organization, I think. One for Formal Garden.

James: haha! How dare ANY garden get up on its high horse! Four for Informal Garden.

Everyone: We like it wild around here with 4-1 voting for an Informal Garden. Anyone else?

Add me to the informal group! I do tons of gardening and I like a free-flowing, non-manicured look. Like nature only a little tamed.

Secret: As you know, I am a big fan of your garden! You have a knack. Five for Informal Garden.
