Encountered a garden yesterday that is everything I wish mine was. Whoever made it definitely knows about permaculture.

there's way more to it than this photo shows. the garden extends behind the house as well, where there is a massive elderberry among other things.

I actually saw this garden a few years ago and it was pretty then but not anything like it is now. wonder if I have a photo of it...

@dthompson Its mostly just loads of well established perennials. Give your own longer lived plants the time and you'll get there.

@Capheind I have loads of them, too, but the aesthetics here are far better than what I am able to do.

@dthompson And when those plants went into the ground it was beyond them too. Time is gardenings secret sauce... except for cacti (lots of ways to cheat time for cacti.)
