Mere Anarchy Loosed

20190529_160550.jpg

The next line of the W.B. Yeats poem featured in the previous post  The Widening Gyre goes like this:

“Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world”.

This tropical themed garden features tigerish striped bromeliads, some with sharp points and serrations and is altogether an explosion of chaotic shapes and colours in every direction; botanic flares and shrapnel, an anarchic sprawl.

No neat flowerbeds planted in rows –  here there is the sense of the wild and  uncontrolled world that Yeats was on about .
