I’ve read somewhere that in designing a Japanese garden a newbie should start with a field of gravel and slowly place rocks, plants and water; this is supposed to remind one that less is more, that everything hangs in an elegant balance that can be destroyed when one tries to fill space.
I’m really hoping these people are on their way to creating a fantastic Japanese garden. But not holding my breath.
Nevertheless, this yard has inspired the new WTF category. For the bitchy voyeur in all of us.
Love it! Please don’t come to Washington soon cause the landscapers have not come yet! Can’t wait to see more!

Who can resist bitchy voyeurism? I know I can’t. Post away! Susan

This made me laugh–taken in East Van, right? Hey, it’s low-maintenance, that’s for sure…!
I’m dying laughing at this picture! Sitting here in San Jose, CA bored out of my mind at my desk because I’d ‘rather be gardening’. I’m new to the gardening blogs & websites; Moosey’s site is what got my attention. I visit her almost daily! Thanks for your great sense of humor because we gardeners can’t get too serious about ourselves! Ha!
It’s not just in East Van, it’s everywhere. All those new houses being built – they’ve paved all land so there’s only a bikini line of grass at the front. What’s wrong with these people???
world’s largest kitty litter!?
