    Don't Get Me Wrong.

    I love nature, and natural landscapes, more than anything else.  But I can certainly appreciate the delights of a formal garden, and of a well-groomed, parklike landscape.  So far, the best I've seen was King's Park in Perth, Australia, though San Francisco's Golden...

    I like my own garden

    I really love looking at different types of

    gardens and landscapes around a home. I purchase the magazine that describes and shows different types of gardens and landscapes. Many are large and others are smaller.
