With winter's passing the meditation garden comes alive, taking on the character of an inviting friend - a place to spend some peaceful quiet time.
I feel uplifted when I see each bush and plant stretch out in April's warmth!
Watching and seeing my garden grow
To more kindness show.
Here is a view of my meditation garden in April - the tall thin spruce in the right background in front of the bench is the Christmas tree I planted just before New Year’s Day.
If I were sitting on the bench and looking forward this is what I would see - my peaceful garden statue and dry stream bed. (To keep weeds out of the stream bed I laid a thick piece of plastic on the ground under the rocks.)
Enjoy a few minutes in your garden as often as you can - listen to the sounds of nature; enjoy the scents of early blooms. Draw to yourself the peacefulness of your meditation garden.
I invite you to join me in a daily world peace group cyber meditation. Click the article here to read about it.
