Garden Gallery: Simplicity

April 12, 2013

It is the typical lament of the garden worker that spring is just nuts.  As much as anyone else I am prone to the insanity of the sudden onset of additional work.  I am already craving simplicity and quiet again — this garden brought me right there.

I think:

Who says we need more than a couple chairs, some grass, a hedge and a few treesWe try to work so much in to our limited areas, but this reminds me that maybe we just don’t need to.  This doesn’t need weeding, and so much of the rest of the maintenance we ascribe to our gardens.  And  it just makes me feel like breathing easy.

    Too much work. That grass would need cutting and the hedge would need trimming and the trees would need pruning. And you would have to move the chairs to do all that.
