Walled Garden

Gardening, it seems to me, is all about our desire to impose order and control on nature. A walled garden is a place of safety.  In the first of these two companion pieces, it’s a safe haven from the primeval forest and its scary creatures (wolves, ravens and weeds) and in the second, from the stresses of the concrete jungle.
