Chaos vs. Control

Why is the garden such a dynamic place?  Because there is a constant tugging between chaos and control.  The garden pulls towards the chaotic, while we strive to gain control.  This challenge somehow drives us to dive in deeper and deeper.

Darn it, we want to badly overpower it...pulling unwanted plants, shearing shrubs into balls, sweeping lawnmowers over grass.  The garden just keeps pushing back.  Maybe we all just love a good fight.
