View Down the Garden Path

I don't do straight lines. So even my paths in the garden have to have curvy lines. It always intrigues me to see a square flower bed in the middle of a square lawn. I wonder if they gave it much thought--especially when it is smack-dab in the middle, and then everything is lined up in perfect symmetry. Symmetry is, well, boring. I'm not saying visual balance is bad, I'm saying if you line things up like soldiers, there's no visual interest.

Your garden is lovely. And I feel the same about symmetry. Where's the element of surprise in straight lines anyway....
