In our 'go-go world, this is advice well worth taking. Ah...

VP said...

I'll take the advice, my compliments to the volunteers...

I like the stone and wood used to make this garden. I love a good garden, large or small. They are perfect places for calming the soul.

I could sit there awhile.

It seems to be a perfect place to enjoy the beautiful greenery in peace. Lovely!

Yes, I've seen 'The Life of Birds'. Actually, Brattcat, I think I've watched all Attenborough's series (even the cool 'behind the scenes') as I am his biggest fan! :-)

As I benefitted from the services from hospice for my parents, I wondered how the hospice workers and volunteers could handle what they do. It is such a challenge, and they do it all the time.

What a sweet, sweet spot. I esp. love the stone walls, appreciating that each was probably selected and laid by hand.

Very well done with Vermont stone! And a wonderful project for the hospice folks. I may need to visit there today to let some of that serenity wash over me!

This photo is a bit startling to me. Reminds me of some of the Native American burial rites when the corpse is left to the elements and environment on an elevated platform. And because the structure was made by senior citizens, the image is strong to me. Our minds are interesting things, aren't they?

Oh I love this peaceful place with that arbor. What a wonderful project.

This is perfect, brattcat. The stones are natural, the twig frame is kind of shaky and the garden is a bit overgrown. Perfect for reflection. Hospice volunteers are saints.

What a wonderful little patch. Perfect for reflection.

It looks pretty rustic.

Nice to be able to sit back and take this scene in from a distance, I should think.

Out of this world beautiful and serene!

It sort of looks like a Neolithic sculpture - thoughts of permanancy and passing.

Beauty, peace and a pastoral mood. I love it!

This is absolutely enchanting.
