Getting tired of all the work a lush lawn requires?

  • mowing
  • raking
  • watering
  • fertilizing
  • aerating
  • top-dressing
  • de-thatching
  • more mowing

Relax.

Take some time to contemplate your navel.

A labyrinth is meant to increase peace and serenity.  What a lovely shift in perspectives.

It looks like creeping thyme is a fine choice for separating the pathway.  It’s tidy, low growing, deer resistant & smells lovely when disturbed.  I think it’ll be striking in bloom.  The bees should love that.

Simple wood chips make the path itself.

I wonder how often weeding becomes an additional style of meditation for this gardener? Or edging?  Those forms of meditation always work well for me.
