Anyway garden , yes I've been working on my little fairy garden / sacred heart garden &
Mary garden . I have decided to rename my herbal flower garden to a tea garden ☺ My image of a tea garden is one of flowers herbs , butterflies & bees . My Grandmother also loved her gardens . She had a lovely garden under a grand birch in her yard it had her blue iris and daffodils . In the center of the fountation of the her old log home which burned she built a fish pond & garden which still houses her special lily .
I love the imagination , vision & the right to believe all is possible especially when it comes to a garden ☺My idea for a tea garden was really boosted when I went off with my gal pals Mary & Summer to Sage Garden Herbs ! When I walked in my two fav herbs were filling the air with their lovely presence Lavender & Rosemary . Do You know they offer a Lavender Wintering Service ! Wow !
I am so inspired being me when I visit places like this I urge You to visit those places that are local near You , the small local family herbs farms etc. I am also inspired by beautiful people who help others in learning more about herbal knowledge just by giving & giving such as Susan Wittig Albert ,
Susun Weed and those who help us long after they have left this world like my grandmother such as Tasha Tudor & my fav all time wisewoman & herbalist Juliette Levy .
So I looked up a tea graden online & basically a tea garden is an inspirational garden a pleasure garden one to sit , walk through and enjoy the delights . I am trying to inspire ds22 to begin his own Japanese tea garden because he has that Asian flare ☺ I watched a show about inspiring gardens on vision tv about a remarkable Canadian fellow who was inspired by Japanese tea gardens in his own healing going on to bring these to others . He is now a well known tea garden designer and helps inspire programs to help elderly with Alzheimer's and other people in need of healing with these gardens .
So I am planning on taking the Summer months off , popping in for the odd giveaway now and then but really wish to enjoy the summer months with dh & children & of course my plants need me too ☺ as I need them . below are just a few of our springtime beginning pictures and I shall post more come late summer as she grows with summer rains & sunny days . Enjoy
