The Garden Ringing Cedar

The other day I was working with the runner on my chicken tractor and turned to spy a new angle of the garden. From down low looking up, the giant sunflower towered over the peppers, tomatoes, green beans, and zucchini.

I clicked a mental picture and imagined what the border of future Kin Domains might resemble with rows of ancient Siberian Cedar trees looming above all in order to draw upon the energy in the universe and slip that energy into the mother earth.

Perhaps this is one reason why Anastasia says every garden needs sunflowers--definitely because they follow the sun and remind us of the power in the ray but also for the imagery they create in the immediate vista.

As perspective the fence in the background is 4 1/2 feet high, the tomatoes are 5 1/2 feet high and thus the sunflower is 12 feet? I may just measure this one to appease my curiosity.

Beautiful, bountiful tidings to one and all.

Funny, earlier today I decided I'm planting sunflowers next year. :)

And Percy Yelloworm (the young phoenix) is carrying a bag of sunflower seeds on his back as he & his family caravans toward their Kin Domain in the still forming W. Toonlandia settlement...most probably to be seen in Space of Love magazine #5
