A Couple of Photos of Garden Setting

I haven’t posted anything here for ages, and thought it was time I got off my backside and got blogging again.  Here are a couple of photos of my little garden setting in situ.

I move these around from time to time, depending on sun and shade conditions. Last week I watched a lorikeet having a bath in the bird bath from a chair about 3 feet away.

Another view with dappled shade.

Another view with dappled shade.

“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there.

It doesn’t matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that’s like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.”
