The weather has been changing so much over the course of this week; with glorious sunshine one minute, followed by heavy rain the next! The plants have been loving it!
We have been busy working on areas in the garden and giving some of the trees a good prune as they have been growing very quickly with such an abundance of sunshine. It always makes me smile when i see the pathways becoming narrow as the plants determinedly flourish in the spaces.
The colours in the garden this week are breathtaking with the Japanese Acers taking centre stage. The reds, greens and yellows are so vibrant and the leaf shapes are so varied it has been transfixed every time i see them.
The fish have been busy this week; getting very lively and even jumping out of the water to catch insects as they get ready to begin breeding.
Every week the garden changes and every week I can’t help but notice one thing that remains consistent as the visual aesthetic constantly adapts: the feeling of peace and tranquility.
The busy world we live in everyday seems somehow quietened and time slows a little when i walk around the garden. I usually find myself sitting longest at the Zen garden somehow most at ease in front of the gravel and stones; the absence of plants and visual cues gives me an appreciation of what is absent and what is present.
I hope those of you that visit this week enjoy this feeling
