Mid Spring Magic

From the Instagram archives: May 20, 2020

Forsythia
Hyacinth

The forsythias, early magnolias, hyacinths, & Primulas have made their march o’blooms & set the tune for spring’s ever cycling melodies.

bluebells & red maples: Mertensia virginica & Acer palmatum
Halesia carolinia: Carolina silverbell

The harmonies of wisteria & peonies, Schisandra & silver bells, are ringing their final notes passing along the symphony.

Somewhere in between the Viburnums, Packyra, Geraniums & fleabanes started their arioso weave to complete the round.

Packera aurea: golden ragwort
Geranium maculata: woodland geranium

🌸
Each blooming piece playing an essential role, taking their turn to twirl in their thread, unfurling the breathtaking, infinite tapestry they all create together. For the beauty, well being, & soul nourishment of all.

Cyclical & in harmony, forever the same concert, orchestrated in slightly different tunes to weave a single symphony, arousing the coy joy of spring in all.

May we continue to be present, witness the magic, & encompass these lessons from nature as the turns continue…

We are so looking forward to when we can have volunteers & visitors in the garden again. The garden is longing for the people’s love & admiration, as are we to share it’s magic with you. The urge to pass on plant passion & knowledge is ever a flame, but not so much the urge to sit & type of it; conversation/in-person connection is the favored way to share:). Alas Spring has won the tug-of-urge game, hypnotizing us with its fleeting symphony, whisping us away in whimsy from modern distractions and back to the source. Where nurturing, reciprocity, & gratitude lead the tune. Pruning, seeding, weeding, mulching, & planting have blissfully consumed our time with spring’s ephemeral timelessness. We hope you’re taking time to take in nature’s magic, & maybe give a little back.

Bursting blossoms, spring serenity, & May Day magic to you all💐✨
