|See? That lawn has got to go! Eventually...|
We call this the 'island of misfit toys' because all the plants that don't seem to work
in other places get put out here. Surprisingly, they seem to thrive! Maybe it is the
succulents cheering them on... :-)
|here is a good shot of the carport, and the handsome maker :-)|
|yeah...insetting those flagstones is no small task! So many still to go...|
|The rock garden has been transformed into our meditation garden! Removed a giant heather |
and replaced it with this sweet Korean pine grown by a local organic gardener.
I am absolutely loving playing with all the succulents in the garden. All the growing things give me hope, even in the face of national tragedies and downright depressing realizations about the reality of our culture, society, and country. Even still, the plants take the sunlight and sweet rain water and magically grow taller, stronger, and more miraculous each day. I can lose myself just walking and sitting in the garden, watching the wind play with the grasses and the birds flitting from perch to perch looking for seed. Yes...that gives me hope in tomorrow.
