~ Willow Garden In Progress ~

Though there is no chance of resurrecting the Pacific Willow tree, restoring a sense of calm and beauty to this garden is my main focus this week. There have been showers and more in the forecast, but that doesn’t bother an intrepid old landscaper like me! It’s actually perfect weather for the kind of work I’m doing.



once a mighty tree

now a hollowed-out remnant

rebirth of willow


just to be outside

breeze in hair sun warming earth

renewal abounds

    I’ve always loved rock borders in a garden. That bird house is a nice touch to the scene. ❤
