|It was hard to tell where the weeds ended and the flower began|

One of the issues that bugged me about this garden was the plants contained in it. Large shrubs like spirea, potentilla, hydrangea and wygelia stood out sharply against the lawn. Perennials like maltese cross and jacob's ladder seemed an odd mix with rock plants like candytuf and rock cress. The plants lacked cohesion to each other and to my brain. Nothing seemed to fit together and against the vastness of the lawn I was perplexed.
|Candytuft is all but hidden by the weeds and dwarfed by the potentilla|
Do you have a knot garden? Do you dream of one? What does it look like?
