Garden of Tarot


Gardens are very peaceful and there is insight in them you can find believe it or not!

There are long rolling paths to walk slowly, each step a new area, a new energy, a new plant, a new Tarot card, folding seamlessly into each other. The overlap between the worlds, of the seen and unseen can be experienced here. The garden is resplendent in her colors, life pours forth from the delicate spring flowers, scenting the air with life, health, rebirth and underneath the humus, sleep. The World Card is clearly seen here.

Chicory (Justice) stands elegantly delicate, her thin green stems surprisingly strong, bearing many green buds and flowers on upright stems. Beautiful bluish purple flowers, like rays of blue suns for a blue planet. Chicory is tall, a graceful model.

Pink and Crimson Clovers (Queen of Cups) stand in exquisite contrast , slightly shorter and rounder, wearing their brightly colored flower hats boldly. Blue, red, and pink emerge from green grass whilst indigo sky embraces the billowy white clouds above. The landscape they create is both breathtaking and exquisite. The intelligent design of the earth co exists with the equally intelligent mind of designer. One can come here to heal, to recover, to meditate, to play, to work and to be.

The Foxglove Digitalis (Judgment), bears pink and spotted trumpets, heralding memories of an old friend who left earth much too early.

White Daisies (Queen of Swords) dance in the warm breeze, their white petalled skirts flirtatiously flowing into a salsa upon the gentle winds of Zephyr.

Sage (The Sage/High Priest) sees clearly; waving magnificent pillars of blue flowers high, a scepter of petals, a tower of fiery inspiration and wisdom.

Bronze fennel (Four of Wands) bursts with life and promise, the energy of playing and dancing, her new leaves small copper pony tails, dispersed throughout her stalks, sending loving energy to all.

Angelica (The Empress) has earth angels that dance lower down, near her roots, bowing splendidly, a deep curving bow, arching gracefully forward, curly green tips the finale.

Rue (The Magician) is bolder, exotic, sexy and funky, bearing yellow flowers daringly, calling the sun gold color of that star into itself, turning the flowers into light. Light pours from the garden, the leaves fiery swords of spirit, of transformation, transmutation and regeneration. At the entrance to the garden lies a flat rock marked with a runic symbol, so ancient, no one living remembers its name.

Dancing them is a reading, the herbs of the Tarot everywhere to be seen, sharing wisdom, life, possibilities and healing!
