Beauty

My thing-of-the-day calendar has this to say today:

"Don't let your garden become too serious - unrelenting beauty can get a little boring. Try injecting a little whimsey with anything from topiaries to gnomes."

* Is it possible for unrelenting beauty to get a little boring?
* I'm rather worried about the prospect of injecting gnomes into anything.
* And is it the garden itself which is too serious? Or does it just look that way?

P.S. Read the comments to this entry: I found whimsical garden gnomes in the OED!
