Exercise in Disguise

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

The sun hasn't broken across the wide prairie yet. This is a great time to work on the spring garden layout. Out comes the graph paper and the cut-outs from magazines. The colored pencils, too. Dreams on paper.

After the sun lightens the southern Colorado sky I will go out, rake, and then take the hose to form shape of my garden. If I'm satisfied I will haul some rock over to form the border. All the while I'll be visualizing the goal of that beautiful garden.

I will try to visualize in 3D. Toofa pots, whisky barrels overflowing with vines. A cobbled path to this main garden.

Exercise for the soul, spirit, mind and body.

    Thanks for all the wonderful comments and encouragement. Hubby fenced in an area so that I can garden to my heart's content. I left my iphone at the market and can't retrieve it til Saturday. Then I'll get "before" pictures.

I am overjoyed no goats or antelope can get into the space.

    Wow I feel like I want to start working on one just from reading your blog. I think visualizing is beautiful, and I am trying to learn more about planning ahead. Great peek into a beautiful garden that already exist in the mind of the artist.
