Energy is the first thing I work on in a garden design and surprisingly, it doesn’t move in straight lines or take 90 degree turns. Humans created thats because it was easy. So bringing energy into a garden means fluidity, recognising where it’s flat, negative and strong and knowing what to do about it. The result when it’s been enhanced enough to harness pure universal energy is a feeling of pure love. That can change any one of us if we want to let it in.

With my to-do list getting long & linger by the minute, I knew that I 100% needed to get my groceries done! If they aren’t bought, I can’t meal prep. If I can’t meal prep, I am unsuccessful throughout the week with my nutrition. •
When you have a long list of things to get done, make sure you prioritize which ones are the most important to you & which ones will help you be successful!.
Next up on my list: meal prepping!
In every season and in all weather there is something interesting to discover outside, whether you´re in the garden, in a park or in the woods. But regarding the rain, grey skies and the early darkness that still takes you by surprise, -Already? We have just woke up!-, I must admit you need to make an effort. There is not much colour left now in the garden, the last yellow leaves are blown away in the wind and even the Rose-ringed Parakeets look less colourful. Apparently this is all dreadful enough for the crows to not await sunset to gather in the bare trees, but to sit tight hours earlier. They look like coachmen in the rain; shoulders hunched in their over-sized coats, taking the burden.
So, no colour but plenty of form to focus on. The silhouette of the trees are always interesting and now is the time to check on the form of your garden.
And to have a look at all the different shapes of leaves. I collected some of them in the garden this morning. A linear olive plant leaf, a heart-shaped poplar leaf, an ensiform leaf of the Taxus Baccata, Palmatisect – Yes, I looked it up on a leaf morphology list...- rounded, ovate, elliptic…an endless variety of form on just one square meter and all examples of sublime efficiency. Two forms are completly absent. No rectangular leaves or square flower petals. It makes me wonder why we humans, are so found of those shapes. I mean, I like square for the giftwrapping of Christmas presents and rectangular when it comes to books or the table I am sitting at but if square is supposed to be such a sublime form, the sun would be square, right? (Or the planet, the moon, your cat…well, fill it in). According to my dictionary, besides a plane figure, square also refers to old-fashioned and boring. Yes, and straight and honest…as I said, boring. Plants just don’t won’t to be boring. How smart.
