Garden Reports and Rejoicing – February 8
Every once in awhile I open a folder on my desktop that is labeled “core beliefs/values.” I don’t know about you, but I find that it’s easy to lose track of such convictions when dealing with everyday life. Sometimes I think that it would be good to open this folder, and read it, every morning.
I have twelve things listed in this file and find that every time I open it something jumps out. Today it was this: There’s information and inspiration everywhere.
This is an empowering thought for the garden and beyond. Going into the landscape with this in mind keeps us alert for all opportunities, from plant location to problem solving. And garden design? Just keep your eyes and mind open…ideas and creativity will make themselves at home.
It’s good to be reminded that knowledge and insight abound. We can all go through life without really seeing what’s around us, and what those surroundings offer. Maybe we should all have Bill Watterson’s book title tattooed someplace on our bodies: There’s Treasure Everywhere.
