A Work in Progress
In planning and designing a personal garden, process is key. While maintenance is easier as the garden matures, there is always one element or another needing attention as our viewpoint changes toward color or texture - or a new solution is unearthed.
Trees anchor space with their ever-increasing trunk size. And hardscape delineates planting areas. Each plant is allowed enough space so that it has room to grow and prosper.
After many years, and many changes our garden feels right. We take more time enjoying - and less time developing and maintaining. And yet, there is one final area which calls to us. We envision a dining table for six. We see our friends enjoying a warm summer evening with us - dining on grilled this or that, enjoying a fine wine, conversing and laughing into the night.
While we have given so much to our garden, it returns to us ten fold - as we enjoy its peace and harmony. It fills and nourishes us.
