Secret Garden Archway

Secret Garden Archway

I have loved to read even as young child. I remember a book about a gate to a secret garden. I don’t believe it was illustrated but in my mind, I had a vision of something like this. I saw an archway that was not locked or closed off. It was open and inviting. It led into a beautiful garden that I imagined. It was full of incredible trees, plants, flowers bird and tiny critters. It was not only green but had a multitude of vibrant colours: the kind you would see in Heaven. 

I took the original photograph and decided to “play” with it to create a perfect entrance way to my imaginary and fanciful, magical garden of creative potential. It is ripe with perspectives and possibilities as I hope my creative world is too.

A Peony, a Fern and an Ant

I was just thinking this would be a great start to a joke, “A Peony, Fern and an Ant grow up together in a garden…” 

I simply like the composition of the ferns highlighting the full blossom peony and the little ant doing its job to open up the shut peony. 

According to the DIY Network website, “Ants and peonies go together like peanut butter and jelly. The association is so strong that much folklore has developed around the issue of ants on peonies”  

Further it says, “To a certain extent, ants actually take advantage of the peony flowers, harvesting much nectar from the plants. But the peonies also benefit, in that ants often devour any insects that are attacking the plants.”

Wilting Sunflower

Wilting Sunflower

I went for a walk in the fall time and came across a garden with beautiful sunflowers. This one was wilting from having been cold during the night. I like the fact that it has character despite having faced difficulties.  

It is dealing with the negative elements but doing incredibly well. It is like people who deal with problems and issues but continue to be positive and come out up on top. 

Good luck to any and all people facing difficulties. Face the challenges and come up over the barricade or hurdle with achievement and accomplishments.

Growth After

I was reading a book or listening to an audiobook. I forget now but the purpose of the drawing is to indicate that when we grow, we develop our minds and the fruits or in this case, flowers or a garden, begin to grow. It can be growth mentally, physically, emotionally or spiritually. 

I have put a person meditating and coming to some realizations and therefore is producing amazing thought patterns which manifest in reality. She is vibrant and beautiful. I have included a rainbow of colours to illustrate the fullness of her/our abilities.

Ornamental

This is a Japanese Garden found near the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. There is balance here.

According to the Internet, “Kanso is the Japanese equivalent of feng shui which is all about harmonising yourself with your surrounding environment. It’s every hoarder’s nightmare as it means to get rid of clutter and eliminate the non-essential. … The Japanese aesthetic is part of a seven-part principle to achieve total zen.”
