Not to contribute to the dreaded analysis paralysis, but this Pintrest collection images of fantastical gardens– from medieval sources to contemporary artists–may inspire your own garden, or at least give you a good dose of winter inspiration.  Well worth a peek. Thanks to BoingBoing for the lead.

  1. I don’t even need medieval fantastical garden paintings to give me garden envy, I just have to look at those glossy magazines at the local supermarket. You know, the ones in which no weeds ever appear, where all the exotically beautiful plants flower perfectly – and simultaneously – and the charming garden tchochkes are exquisitely suited to their surroundings. Where no husband has left tools out, no neighbor’s dog has dug a hole and no child has carelessly flung a tricycle.

    You can probably guess what kind of garden I have.

  2. Donna: Your comment brings a smile to my face. Did you ever notice that these Gardens usually produce so good. I think it is the tricycle and the child helping Mom….
