My garden's gone wild . . . a profusion of weeds, but more importantly, a profusion of pause-giving glimpses of the Divine . . . freely bursting with healing balm. So here's a Mid-Spring Garden Walkabout . . . Part One . . . “a spontaneous journey through this wilderness open to spiritual transition and transformation”.
aflame . . .
"well, you weren't here yesterday", "I WILL argue with you", "I can't heaarrr you"
death and bloom are neighbors
frog eggs in fish pond
laid by resident frog . . . 40 years of living here and the land is healing . . . only in last five years have frogs stayed . . . oh the hundreds of tadpoles and frogs we've imported
Virginia blue bells
now you see me, now you don't
apropos name . . . blowing in the wind . . . so happy, so content
roaring dande, soon to whoosh
life cycle so obvious . . . a wishing delight
yummmm . . . "delish breakfast" . . . shhhh, there's another one!
digitalis . . . fox glove . . . heavenward
down cast gaze
a bubbling fountain singing under a bell light . . . restoring sight and sound
hosta star dialogue
whirlwind hosta and star . . . a spinning out of time
coolest of cool hostas living beside a chimanea . . . the draw of opposites . . . the teaching, the blessings . . . tears from recent hail storm
60 year old gnome who's been singing our gardens into life since we lived in Germany . . . a treasured family member through two generations!
reaching skyward . . . prayer in motion . . . gleaning energy for beaming peace . . . moving through/mastering lessons of soil, water, air . . . See the leaf bud power pushing through a fallen decaying leaf? I freed it . . . removed that constriction allowing swifter opening.
one person's weed is another person's flower
elusive, transitory, flash of hope
clematis fragrance melding with birdsong . . . a symphony divine
"what, I'm not suppose to grow in these conditions . . . I didn't know . . . but I'm going to stay and thrive"
grace in bloom
a woodland violet demurely smiling . . .
stately marble mansion
third year of bluebird ownership . . . many have fledged . . . a sanctuary
only poppy to grow in shade . . . a native . . . check out those mighty fuzzy seed pods . . . a bursting profusion of new life . . . hardy woodland hearts!
where/when differences enhance the whole . . . each magnifying the other . . . all thriving!
