Just when you thought BLOSSOM didn’t have another bloom in her, she pops out to surprise you, just like my peonies. Spring was lost on me this year and I don’t even know where my concentration to connect more than two sentences together went, but it is reemerging and just in time to celebrate SUMMER. Just so you know I haven’t become obsessed with labyrinths. I promise this is the second and last one you’ll see in my blogs, but this one is too beautiful not to show off. Though it doesn’t meet the exact requirements of the traditional labyrinth with the cross, corners and dots, it definitely has the quality to inspire – at least for me. It was created as part of the Rose Parade celebrate in Portland a few weeks ago and I was lucky enough to have a friend there to capture an image while it was in full bloom. Composed of little pots of flowers and herbs, the design was not that hard to make – not like my rock one – and fortunately not as permanent either. After the festivities, people could select their favorite piece of growing art and take it home to eat or meditate with – or both. That’s what I call a win – win.
