Relax and enjoy
I've been outside gardening most of the day and thinking about something that I'd like to share, especially with novice gardeners. Just relax and enjoy your garden. Pay no attention to smartypants who claim never to make mistakes. We all make mistakes, and the world has yet to end. Ignore people who try to force their tastes on you; if it's beautiful and it gives you pleasure, then it's wonderful, no matter what some gardening pundit has to say. Nobody has the right to assign a grade to your garden or proclaim that something's out of style. Joy is always in.
