woohoo the garden, just 2 years ago it was full of junk, and now its flourishing. i will try and get myself reaquainted with it as I've been lazy and i miss it.
I have a question Blue...whats the meaning of life?...dont say, love, or 42. the answer has to have metaphors that involve the forest garden...a riddle if you will. :?
It's like God's vagina!

ok "garden" Andy :roll:
The meaning of life, using the metaphor of ze forest garden.
The Forest Garden (Life) is essentially meaningless. Things grow and die for no other reason than to live and die. The forest garden is pointless, in essence.
BUT. (ahem)....by looking after it, tending it, caring for the fragile things that grow and pass away, blossom bloom and fruit, provide homes for creatures that, too, live and die..---by caring attentively to the garden it begins to have meaning for you. You feel a part of it, at one with it if you will.
Slowly, the garden becomes a complete picture to you, and in doing so becomes an inseperable part of who you are. The relationship you have with the garden defines the meaning...i will go as far as to say --the relationship IS the meaning.
Treating "the forest garden" with respect, love and care turns it into something that means a great deal to you.
If you want to define that meaning further still, then i will say -its impossible-for this is about a living experience, a relationship, ....i guess its like making love.......the meaning is written in everything you do.
Define the meaning by your actions.

The garden grows....

And....i have seen the blackbird. He and his wife. And i know that blackbirds love rowan berries.Pidgeons won't eat them--blue tits are too small.....the rowan and the blackbird are closely bound.
It is common knowledge to boring nature lovers like me that blackbirds seed Rowans.

any more questions my lovlies? :wink:
up and at it.

the horse chestnut IS free....-have you seen it?!?
A growing tree is a growing tree regardless of where it is growing...-i feel defensive.
Um....-what do you mean set it free?
-plant it out somewhere?.....it is in a pot that is in a toilet full of soil.so the root system has a pot space with bit removed from the bottom so it can dig deeper.
The diversity created by having a tree on board really helps the garden.
The rowan tree grows in a bit of wall....we can pot that up soon.!x
Maybe we could start a tree nursery with the intention to donate the saplings to regeneration areas?
The horse chestnut is from a tree 5mins walk away from where my mum lives in north London, i have raised it from conker.
I feel very attatched to it.
LOve!!!
:D

Nice work blue, you're doing a great job by the sound of it. And i agree - it is meaningless until you become attached, much like anythin else. It's like the fox for the little prince.
