Just yesterday I was welcomed to Lucy's garden.
She had said, "come and photograph my garden".
Finally, I was there in this secret space full of delight.
Enjoy! And find a quote or two along the way.
"The bonsai is not you working on the tree;
you have to have the tree work on you."
There were many bonsai in Lucy's garden.
There were many varieties of geraniums too.
A sweet rose.
"Is time that involves itself in the moment,
that focuses on the soaring stateliness of trees
and the minute scale of the tiniest blossom.
Garden time requires daily attention
but does not require that everything be done in a day.
Come apart from your busyness
to be renewed and refreshed
in the company of growing things.
It won't take long,
but it will feel like a day in the country."
Spending time in Lucy's garden felt like time spent in the country,
a respite from the world outside the garden.
