A Garden Scavenger Hunt
Last spring I worked really hard getting the gardens around my house in some manageable state. This year you would never have guessed. The gardens this spring are lush and thick with flowers that belong and others that have come to join the party! I don't know how this happens, but every year I am more accepting of the things happening in my garden.
Arch - the arch is a representation of the rainbow. It stretches from earth to heaven and back again,
symbolizing the integration of power and love.
Twinkling mirrors and pretty beads - they hang from the archway, dancing with light in the breezes. (these were added after the photo)
Bells and chimes - throughout the gardens, invited to ring by the wind. They symbolize the awakening to the life dreams, prayers and visions.
Fairies - although the ones you might see are made of metal, they remind you to step gently, for
fairies dance and play among the flowers and may be hiding while you are on your quest.
Ladybug tea party - the ladybugs are having a tea party in the fairy garden. Can you find the tea set
near the blooming coral bells blooming in the spring.
adversity. In my garden the bamboo holds pretty bottles in the fairy garden. How many
did you find and what colors are the bottles.
Fountains and water features - flowing with prosperity and abundance of life energy, water elements
change the feel of the garden.
Those are a few of the things listed, I also have Goldfish to count, Birdhouses to find, Garden flags, Tree faces, a toad house, swings, elephant ears (in the summertime), naming the cats and dogs and whatever else I can think of to cause one to walk through my gardens. Do you think it will keep the grand-kids busy for a little while?
