Fall Landscaping: Seed Planning for coming 2019 seasons

Landscaping – Front Bed

 

As luck would have it our fall has been warmer which extends my time to get out and do a fall clean and plan for the coming year.  This year I have considered adding lavender and forget me nots in the front due to the South Eastern exposure.  The rest of the yard does not have the full sun that lavender enjoys.  Prior to getting out though I decided to get a full perspective of what is actually going on in this area.

The first thing that I notice is that every plant in this bed is more than decoration.  Each one can be one of the following:

Symbols for Quick Reference above each plant entry:

Mortar

Medicinal

tea kettle

Dye Plant

These plants may flower with some flowers turning into berries.  I have made flower and/or plant essences from each of these plants.  Most of them I eat as edibles during their season and have made oils and tinctures with them.

The second area I want to check out is the significance of the placement of each plant and the relationship to the life areas each placement represents.  There are nine life areas in a grid of 3 x 3.

Listed below are the meaning of some of these plants to given you an idea of why I find it important to look at their placement in this garden bed.   I check into their symbolism and connection to  the subtle energy centers of the body that they are associated with.  These aspects would give me the incentive to consider what is happening in my current experience and are ones that I would change for balancing out their placement.

Going through the list I enjoy the growing awareness of how the meaning qualities reflect the values that I am integrating through Nonviolent Communication studies and practice.  The mirror reflection for me is that the intention of connecting to values is a deeper lifestyle integration than I had imagined.   It’s a  microphone drop moment for me!  I highlighted the values and qualities I strive to mentor others to achieve through goal-setting and Nonviolent Communication Practice.
