Garden design thoughts

Work conundrums have gotten in the way lately of enjoying the magical morning light, the bounty of the vegetable garden, and experiencing the joy of gardening. 

But, preparing for a class about mixed borders, I made note of a point in Ann Lovejoy's excellent book about garden design (Ann Lovejoy's Organic Garden Design School).  She wrote about how gardens were a process, not something to be finished, in much more elegant prose than what I'm remembering.  This book is one of my favorites, actually;  it's wise about sustainable gardening, but equally wise about creating a garden that suits you.  And isn't that the point?

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
