There is a beauty and tranquility that gardeners aspire to create in their garden spaces.
What we sometimes seem to forget is that before we began to move’ dig or change the landscape there were creatures who inhabited the space before us.
In order to create a space rich in energy and in balance with our Mother,
We must honor those who live near and beneath our feet.
I have come to understand these creatures and do not seek to harm them in any way.
First and foremost it’s important to know these amazing reptiles, amphibians and insects are not poisonous, they do not seek me out to harm me.
Instead we have a symbiotic relationship.
I create garden spaces and they take care of things that seek to harm it.
For those who garden in areas where creatures live that may do the gardener harm, care is of utmost importance. But if like myself you are fortunate to live in an area free of harm, enjoy and honor those who share your garden space!
I’ve often said life gets in the way of living or perhaps its the other way around. However one chooses to interpret the statement, these past months life has indeed put obstacles in the way of living. Even though the winter in Eastern Pennsylvania was not harsh to the outer world, it was harsh internally.
The labyrinth in spring
As days grew longer and the earth moved into another spring season I moved back into the gardens and pictures were taken and stored.
Life continued to swirl around me. Many changes occurred including retiring from an 18 year vocation. New paths are being created in the gardens and new paths are opening before me.
Come back to the gardens and enjoy their ever-changing vistas.
