Camas Garden Fair (Mother’s Day eve)

yard art-repurposed-gardening-SwittersB-Camas

the day before Mother’s Day…a lot of Mothers and Daughters walking the six block or so stretch of booths in downtown Camas (Washington State). Plants, antiques, yard art, ducks, chickens, goats, horses, a man juggling on stilts, food carts, decorations and creations for the yard, patio, porch, deck…where ever your imagination could envision their creations. Repurposed materials maneuvered into new designs. Flowers blooming and the smell of BBQ smoke and perhaps something more farm like too. Many dogs on leashes or pampered and carried or in carts. People carrying boxes, pulling wagons of all manner of plants. The gardening fever in total evidence. The weather was perfect..in the high 70’s. Walking beneath sprawling trees lining the avenue. A nice venue…

Secret Garden

“The many great gardens of the world, of literature and poetry, of painting and music, of religion and architecture, all make the point as clear as possible: The soul cannot thrive in the absence of a garden.”

Pointy Hatted & Smiling

‘Why the fascination

with this little, smiling,

pointy hatted, garden creation?’

SwittersB

I have this emerging distraction in the garden…too many things, too many doodads, too many busy things. Windmills, yard art, wind chimes, spinning crystal balls, bells, bird baths, statues amidst the flowers, trees, shrubs. Too many. Some were my Mom’s, my Aunt’s. Sentimentality and history keeps them anchored. But, I have added ‘stuff’. I need, I must, wean this gardener out of the clutter of sounds (too many competing sounds of chimes), out of peeling, painted concrete animals (I actually won’t have difficulties here). 

Oh, but the one creations that I will not be able to remove are the Gnomes. Oh my no! No can do. Magical. Suggesting, no more than a suggestion, something to the garden that is tended to in my absence (wish they would weed now and then). I give it little depth of thought. Probably because I know it is fanciful, make believe. Yet, as an adult, there is this silliness of having these little pointed hatted, smiling creations greeting me as I enter the yard.

Hmmm? The older I get, the more I like to stay in touch with that last vestige of fantasy…helps with the grandchildren.
