This is an artistic interpretation of the garden in the story. Starting at the top of the drawing the garden is more organized; the plants are in rows in planters, there are less weeds, and the path is neat. As you move down the drawing the garden gets less organized: The plants become more and more overgrown, the path becomes misshapen, and there is more over all scribble. The top of the drawing looks more like what the garden would have looked like when Ted and Rose were together. At the bottom the garden is unorganized and unkept. The messiness at the bottom represent more how Rose feels now during the divorcing process.
