A garden. What makes a garden a garden? Soil, nurturing, nature’s sun and rain to be sure. But there is something more, or, it is merely a field. Nothing wrong with being a field mind you. But a garden must have boundaries, defined limits. A fence. A fence makes a garden complete, whole. And to be proper, the fence must be dilapidated, weathered wood.
Now we truly have a garden. A peaceful place. Where one can meditate, contemplate. A happy place.
Beauty surrounds us, but usually, we need to be walking in a garden to know it.
