- Taking a moment from weeding and deadheading. Looking back at the labyrinth I saw this. The drone of cicadas and humming of tractors in the distance helps me to once again appreciate why I call this a piece of paradise.
Aromatic scents fill the air
The earth’s perfume – sweet, earthy, musk and floral notes tease our sense of smell
A walk through a garden is experiential
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!
It begins anew every year.
Changing – expanding
Seeds are harvested to be planted again
The cycle continues
There is unbound joy from garden to table
Vegetables harvested, prepared and eaten the same day
A bounty to be shared with family and friends
More than shades of green
Gaia’s children awoke and reached towards the sun
The gardens in full bloom
