I stood alone amongst swaying trees
Groaning, creaking bark rubbing against bark, branches entwined cracking
A cold, damp wind permeated my soul
I sought refuge with the Dreamer…
and realized I had not been the only one
I pulled my scarf tighter around my neck and clutched my coat hoping to keep the cold at bay
Even on frozen days the garden’s beauty shines through
The garden is a refuge, not only for me but also for those who prowl its paths after dark
Slowly she awakens
Casting off the blanket that has kept her warm for these many long months
She opens her eyes and looks towards the sun
But air around her still holds a winter chill
Turning over she pulls the blanket tight against her
Just a few more days…
WHAT TO DO WITH DISCARDED ROOFING SLATE?
As if a myriad of greens and profusion of color are not enough
Gardeners add yet another level of interest to their gardens.
Perusing roadsides on junking day, (trash day in America), local thrift stores or antique shops, equips the gardener with a Pandora’s box of innovative objects and ideas.
One is never enough
An otherwise ordinary corner of the garden becomes an inviting destination.
Most posts on this blog focus on the world as I see it through the lens of a camera.
Yesterday I blogged how another blogger interpreted those photos.
Today I add yet another post on interpretation.
I love sculpture in the garden. Unfortunately I, as many people, do not have the disposable income which allows one to purchase said sculptures. So as many gardeners do, I scrap, salvage and create.
With this is mind I have learned how to turn sand, cement and peat moss into leaves that adorn the garden year round.
Now into the gardens
What inspires you?
The gardens grant us peace of mind
Peace of soul
Silence in an otherwise chaotic life
A moment to feel an inner warmth
Come walk with me
Through fields of snow to a hidden enchanted place
A secret garden, hidden in plain view, one only needs to look
