And, because I know nothing about gardening, I’m not going to provide any tips today. I did, however, google the world’s weirdest gardens. So, here we go:
1. The Garden of Cosmic Speculation; Dumfries, Scotland: This garden looks like you’ve just stepped into a Salvador Dali painting.
2. The Alnwick Poison Garden; Northumberland, England: Everything in this garden can kill you, or at least, really ruin your day.
3. Bookworm Gardens; Sheboygan, Wisconsin: This garden is based on all our favorite children’s books! I’ve never wanted to picnic somewhere more.
4. Step Garden at Acros Fukuoka; Fukuoka, Japan: Built into the rooftop of one of the largest buildings in Fukuoka, these steps make for a massive park.
5. The Highline; New York City, USA: I don’t know why this never makes it onto any “crazy garden” lists, but the Highline is one of my favorite spots. A garden/park built on abandoned above-ground train tracks.
6. The Hanging Basket at Hotel Indigo; London, UK: Apparently this thing weighs over a ton(ne) and is the world’s largest flower basket.
For now, my garden consists of one very small, unkillable window plant. But that plant is still alive, so I’ll call that a victory for me.
