The sage and lavender plants in the Woodwynn Peace garden are growing. We’ve had a heat wave and many many dry days this summer so regular hand watering (our only option) has been required. It’s hot work, but the wonderful view, the fragrance, the sounds of eagles (and other birds, drones, and sometimes even parachutists), being right there near the ground with baby lizards that are only 3 inches long — as well as having delicious blackberries nearby — already ripe in early July, well, there are a lot of things that make it all worthwhile.
And we can’t begin to say how grateful we are to know that other folks love this garden and want to look after it too! Thank you to ALL who have been helping along the way. And to all who visit and enjoy a few peaceful moments in this very special location.
We are still pulling small thistles constantly and there are rogue blackberries that need to be monitored in a few places on the labyrinth and in the sage beds. Funny how those blackberries are friends when they grow a few meters outside of the garden but enemies when they appear inside 🙂
