Please post pictures that highlight the aesthetics of polyculture gardening or farming! I am in need of inspiration.

Here are a couple of young polycultures that look quite pretty in our garden, even though they're still in their awkward adolescent phase.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for your input! The link is not really what I was looking for. I am hoping to see pictures from private or public gardens that highlight the aesthetics; much as a botanical garden would. I am not looking for pictures of how to do a polyculture garden; as there are many threads already on that. None of my gardens are at the level I aspire to; or, I would have posted pictures. All of mine are either just starting or the lower levels and borders not filled in. I am attaching one of where ours are at (not filled in)...And, hoping others will have filled in pictures. I am looking for inspiration from other established, planned out polyculture gardens.
