If you have the space to enjoy the gentle form and bright green new leaves of a weeping Willow, there’s a place to start!
Need some calm STAT?
There seems to be a plague of high-tension across the land. The holiday hustle is pretty much underway and while you’re pulling out the wrapping paper, Team Fine Foliage wants you to think about all of the ways that that you can bring a sense of serenity and peace to your landscape next year when times seem to be so stressful and chaotic.
You always have the landscape, no matter how large or small to focus on and bring a sense of peace and calm. Right now, I’m choosing to make these my own meditations. If they bring you some ideas for your garden or just the pleasure of relaxing with a cup of tea while you ponder what serenity means for you, then we have succeeded in our mission.
The cool serenity of white birch bark in repetition against a pale autumn sky makes a placid scene.
A spot to sit and meditate on the interesting textures and colors that surround you is relaxing.
Surrounded by tall evergreens, this reflecting pool brings your focus into view with ease.
Even succulents and cacti can be tranquil. The peek-a-boo view here between trees allows you to focus on the shapes and forms in repetition.
The sounds of moving water can be one of the best facilitators for relaxation. The gorgeous foliage surrounding the water feature in this shade garden are a bonus.
Concentrating on the unique shape of a leaf is a meditation all on its own.
The classic lily pads on a pond are one of the oldest garden visions for serenity. Take this vision with you into our harried world and remember to breath.
