Hey, I like this game, so I'm going to keep playing. Now, let me again stress that I really LIKE this garden, even though it's not my taste—or I guess I should say it's just not the way I make a garden. But it is very typical of a quirky neighborhood front yard that really stands out in the middle of its more restrained neighbors. And very Buffalo. We found it on the way to look at a friend's garden. This is about expressing yourself and really having fun. It's nothing that would ever make it to a magazine, but I like it. I even like the madonna--it reminds me of the yards of both sets of grandparents (now long deceased).

I understand your point exactly, Elizabeth. This is a fun garden to see because it exudes exuberance and joy (and I'm sure shakes up its stuffy neighbours). Not something I'd do but then thankfully I don't have to live in a city suburb--anywhere! And the only Madonna I acknowledge is the singer. :-)

Well, it shows attention to detail and a lot of tender, loving care! And, there is diversity in there so that is an added bonus.

I totally agree... NIMG, but it really makes me smile and shows how fun and exhuberant the gardener there is. :)
