Garden Meditation Focal Points

Before I leave my newly landscaped yard, here are focal points we created.  Photographs are courtesy of my iPhone 11 Pro.  With the current Covid-19 shelter in place orders, these spots create soul food.

This is the llama that started it all.  For this sculpter the llama stands for companionship. I gave one long standing friend one for her garden and I have one.  He sits near my favorite pepper tree and is in clear view from my lounge chair reading seat.

My husband had this well seasoned frog.  He put his flat rock seat in the center back position  of a created rock circle in our side yard.  I can’t say I know where the frog was hiding in our yard but he’s perfect.  On my daily yard walks, I always stop and notice him and enjoy the rocks, flowers, frog and dark soil  Frog sits in the garden behind our rock wall.

This lovely sculpture is called Peace.  I found her and loved her and brought her home to my new garden, in the new home I created as a newly single woman.  Now married, again we left her grounded as she has settled into her home facing the rock wall with all its flowers and trees.

I am so grateful that our backyard landscaping was finished before Covid-19 forced us to to shelter in place.  I must confess I am enjoying the peace.  More of this journey to follow.
