I like much of what you have, Getting rid of the strait lines was a must. I would like to know what you have put in that circle of yours? From a long distance edit, the pedestal, sun/dial pehaps, remains in that strait line view from what I assume might be your house. Have you considered offsetting it a bit to the right?

My friend Jim did something similar, a hole within a circle on a patio. I nudged it to the side to make it less centered. In your case the sundial? is an exclamation point. The garden eye tend to stop at such placements. Is that where you want the eye to rest?

Trust me, I am so guilty of that myself -- but I am still learning and at near 58, it is about time!. NOV 30. Sagg. that I be.

I would love to hear about your plant choices!
I will visit your Long Straight Ugly Garden Path .What you have done so far is so GOOD. Bad Feng Shui ... the other.

Sorta like me building a brick barbecue next to the pond element. :-)

Photography is a funny thing. First it is the greatest and most critical editor. What your eye overlooks in the garden (the overhead power line that you have come to overlook) is quite different what a photo captures.

Sometimes even of ourselves. :-)

I just came across a box of old photos. They reveal the changes in these gardens I work for. WOW. They also made me remember some I had forgotten.

Mind and memory are fickle things. Photos are a very good thing to have, if you want to remember your garden. Filing them appropriately is equally important.

Jacque, you would be amazed at the mess and uglies of some of my beginnings. People should cherish those to measure their accomplishments after. .
