Are you feeling it, too? How the government and big companies seem to be getting more and more powerful without us even noticing? Think, for example, about companies like Facebook and Google. Or what about the government’s patronising approach? Slowly but surely, more and more rules are being imposed. What’s happened to our freedom? We can feel this limitation of our freedom, but setting ourselves free is almost impossible because we’re dependent on the whole system. But the key word here is ‘almost’. In our garden, we can get started by using summer bulbs. Let your voice be heard: make a statement.
In your own garden, you can do as you please because this is the one place where none of those rules apply. Turn your back on the hardening attitudes of mainstream society and make your statement with any materials you can find. Nothing is odd; anything is possible. Most important: don’t throw anything away because recycling is a way of asserting your break from the throw-away society. When it comes to colours, black, red and maroon are especially good choices. Summer bulbs such as lilies, begonias, calla lilies and dahlias accentuate the message of freedom.
