Up the Garden Path?
Yesterday, I spent the whole day work on conference papers and reading theory. So, by the time 4pm came around, the sun was streaming through the bedroom window, my mind was completely frazzled and I was ready to put the books aside for the day. I decided to go out into the garden and get some fresh air. I pulled on my shoes, grabbed my camera and left the books open on the bed. Now, I don’t know whether I was influenced by the pattern posts on both my own blog and my dad’s, but I found a really interesting pattern almost straight away:
The pumpkin plant, which has snaked its way away from the veggie patch, has run parallel to the stone border that runs the length of the garden. Notice the way the plant’s twists and turns seem almost mirrored by the stones’ uneven arrangement. I think it looks rather like I have an organic path leading down to the bottom of the garden. As a child, I was convinced that there were fairies at the bottom of the garden. Maybe the path leads to them?
