The garden is designed to encourage spiritual refreshment by stilling the mind. It is enclosed; a place of rest and safety. The circular form returns the eye to the centre, away from the outside world. Following the cobbles provides a meditation path which requires concentration and thus diverts attention from daily worries. The planting scheme also reflects this movement, vivid colours at the entrance, calmer ones within the garden. At the heart of the garden a resting stone encourages one to pause, to sit a while and reconnect with nature.
I will be posting details about sponsors, planting and the build itself...so watch this space as we get closer to the show! We hope to see you there!
