Creation comes from within the mind.  My garden is the beginning of something good, something real, something amazing.   It will be created by me, with all of my little horticultral brain cells running rampant in my mind.  Brainstorming sessions have begun.  My sketching pencils have touched the paper.  Creative mind be free, no limits, no fears….

Clematis and pink climbing rose will grow up the railing of the deck.  I definitely need some peonies for they are one of my most cherished flower.  They remind me of my mother when she was young, beautiful and healthy.  You see, for me, flowers carry memories, they carry time.  They mean something to me.  Perhaps this is how I connected with the world of plants at a very young age.  I used to pick black-eyed susans with my grandmother when I was a child.  I remember admiring those linear yellow petals with the brown eye.  I remember being intrigued by the small grains of pollen.  I remember the bees, the sunshine and the wind in my hair as I touched the flower.  To this very day, 20 years later, I am still intrigued. 

The future rock garden in front of my deck will be mottled with boulders, sedums, creeping thyme, pulsatilla, and small rock garden plants.  There is something special about a rock garden, that coarse texture of the rock against the smoothness of the vegetation. The Yin and the Yang. 

And of course, I need an herb garden.  Rosemary, thyme, oregano, and basil.  The four herbs I cannot live without.  There is nothing like the freshness of an herb, especially when using for cooking.  Sprinkle some rosemary on a roasted chicken  and it is so yummy.  Make some pesto sauce with basil. I do this every year.  I always seem to have SO MUCH basil at the end of the season.  So, I always make a nice pesto sauce.  Yum.  Yum. 

Garden ideas.  They come to me in the morning when I awake.  They come to me during my daydreaming sessions in the late afternoon.  They come to me at night.  My mind is always thinking and creating.  My mind is always connecting the creative dots.  My horticultural brain cells are always moving. If you are a passionate gardener/designer, you will know exactly how I feel.
