Zen Garden


I'm creating a small space in my garden for a beautiful Buddha statue I bought. I purchsed a small American Bamboo plant that looks like a dwarf Japanese Maple. I also got some ornamental grasses in shades of blue. I'll fill in the areas around the plants with crushed white stone or small smooth pebbles. Obviously this is a very rough sketch that was inspired by my idea. The garden will look much better than this, hopefully. Besides, I wanted to use these beautiful stamps that came on a letter I received and this seemed to be the perfect fit.
See the garden here!

This is lovely and such a peaceful scene. I'm sure a space in your garden will be as peaceful and wonderful

Rough as it is, this is a beautifully calm image.

These moleskin pieces are among my very favorites of the stuff that you post. They have a wonderful freedom and playful spirit.

And that venetian cat cracks me up whenever I visit.
More please.
Regards,

Neil
