This is the one element of my garden that I’ve become obsessed with. Walking along a sweetly scented pathway, turns here and there. Around one turn I may find a beautiful bench nestled among a different colored lavender. After resting a spell I continue along the path, take another turn and find a unique garden statue at the end of this path.
Turn around and take the other bend where I come upon the edge of a creek or a pond. Maybe there’s a bright fish in the pond and I watch it swim lazily around.
After the pond, I stroll further along taking one turn after another, some ending nowhere. I backtrack and take the other turn until finally I reach the center where there is an arbor offering respite from the hot sun. It’s not a long journey through the maze and I can never get lost because, well, lavender plants are just not that tall!
This is the way I see my lavender maze.
It isn’t real … yet.
It remains in my imagination … for now.
