The Tuesday View: 14th June 2016

Meditation Circle

Meditation Circle

Cathy at Words and Herbs is inviting others to join in posting a photo of the same view of the garden week by week.

Though I often can find a particular plant in bloom to share on my blog, I am not confident my little garden can stand up to a weekly peek of the same view. Cathy suggested using my meditation circle and so I decided to give it a try.

I am fudging a bit already as this photo was taken not today, but rather last night just before 8:30pm as the sun was setting.

As many of you may be aware I created the labyrinth in spring of 2011. I had hoped to plant living walls between the paths using low-maintenance, evergreen perennials; they may not exist though. Since then I have settled on a combination of thymes mixed with a few perennials and annuals for color. The circle is used as a space for walking meditation and the garden itself is my own private peaceful retreat.

    This is a lovely perspective to view your circle from Susie, and I know from my view that there are always tiny details to focus on which only become clear when looking at it in different light or weather conditions. Thanks again for joining in and sharing your special area for peaceful meditation.

    A grand idea; it will be fun to see how it progresses. Perhaps, at the end of the season, you can string your weekly photos into a video???

        I hope you will try. I took pictures every week last year of a crape myrtle as part of the follow the tree meme with the idea of doing a video. I did it, but it was most uninteresting. Trees don’t change much over the winter…it was rather boring so I didn’t post it. BUT, please don’t let my failure inhibit your effort.

    I’m so glad you’ve chosen this view; I often think about walking this path; tomorrow the 16th will be the anniversary of when I did it and today is the anniversary of when we met for the first time but it seemed like I’d known you forever. Despite the different weather the planting doesn’t look very different.

      A whole year! I felt the same and when I ever get a chance to get to Italy we’ll pick right up chatting. I used Angelonia again in the circle. In the borders everything is thriving. Last year this time plants were practically desiccated. Feels much different this year.
