Lost in Garden Translation

What if all plants could talk? What do you think they’d say? “Feed me Seymour” or would they spit some Shakespearean type stuff? Today, I lost myself wondering while wandering. I thought how people must come from miles around to see the gardens, gawking at their naturalness, simplicity and beauty. Unlike their visitors, these plants never move for their roots run deep into the Earth, but if they could would they want to? Where would they go – some exotic deciduous place? Perhaps, it’d be lush and jungle like. To the best of my memory, this was my third trip to a botanical garden and being in Omaha, this one has its own charm. The longer I stayed the more I felt inspired by them. Their ability to stay grounded (no pun intended) and adapt to their changing environment – for them its just faces, not places. What would they say? I invite you to share your thoughts while I share with you some photos I took today at the Lauritzen Gardens in Omaha today….

One of my favorites.

It’s unbelievably soft. I’d make a blanket of it if I could.

  2. Cheryl,

    Thanks for your comments! It wasn’t until recently I’ve found myself making or at least planning more and more trips to botanical gardens across the globe. There is this energy in nature that is so far removed from the humming, honking, horns from our vehicles and other world noise. They have been some of the most peaceful grounds I’ve found on the planet. If there is one in your home town, I encourage you to check it out!!!
