Tribe 3 has grown over the last few months. Slowly and surely. All members are made of the same stuff more or less. I start slowly with these tribes, I let them tell me what the traits are that define them. Each member has an individual interpretation of those traits. I find that they come into their own identity within the group based on the stone itself, the distinct sizes and shapes and what I find possible in the moment.
There is a push and pull between the two
Individuality // Tribe

We have had some big wind storms lately, today is blustery but not damaging. Grey and wet, getting cooler as it goes. I like to wander on days like this and just look at the garden, see what it looks like as the season ends and it goes to sleep. This year I decided not to buy anything new, just shift the old stuff as needed. I moved a few things but not as many as I did the year before. We had a lovely cool wet spring that gave all of my foundation plants a chance to really get established AND I fed everything first thing in the season (usually thats miss for me). Over the course of the summer I have tried to get some ground cover established in the back border. I want to reduce the amount of mulch I need to use on it. I took sprigs of Snow in Summer, Lamium, myrtle, and sweet woodruff and tucked them into the beds, some has taken and will start to spread next year.

I plan to rework the stonework and containers to create a waterfall look and build up the terracing.

This piece was finished more than a year ago, I've been trying to find a good way to photograph and display this work... I may have it figured out now.

Last month I remembered again when I noticed some sprigs popping out between the pavers
Last week I noticed the flowers all in white except for this little guy's shocking pink epaulettes
a year in the making,
it takes time.
