Twelve winter seasons at this place we call home
Twelve years of growth, of knowledge, of mistakes
Alyssum and violas have braved freezing nights
But never have Helleborus rose so confidently above a barren ground
Projects begun and completed
Dreams of those yet to come
Join with us who watch the garden grow in anticipation of what Gaia has planned for us.

What is heaven? Being raised in a culture where we were taught all good people go to heaven, as a child I often visualized what my heaven would look like. For years I thought it would be an expansive beach. I would walk along the water’s edge picking up broken shells and putting them back together.
But as I’ve aged I now believe I have found heaven on earth.
It is a place where I toil from morning to evening co-creating a living canvas.
Colors blend, creatures thrive and happiness abounds.
Spoiler alert! – this is not a post about the mystical circles found throughout the English countryside, but a post about the circles found within the natural world.
Whether you look up
or down, you’ll find the circular shape replicated again and again.
Circles may be as massive as the sun or as minute as the spider’s eyes.
You find them in every shade of every color.
An insight into the natural world or an insight into the soul of creation, circles abound.
Just look into the eyes of someone you love and you will find a circle!
For those who have young children take them on a circle walk. Encourage them to count the number of circles they discover during their journey. You’ll be amazed to see the world through their eyes!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
