I’ve been busy gathering photos and other materials from the inception of the GANG garden in 2009 until now. Here, BTW, are the “Before” pictures, taken in January 2009. A backhoe was used to dig the hole for what would become the pond in December 2008.
This is the 7th year, so it seems fitting that I go back now and recollect during the garden’s first “Saturn square” (1/4 of a 29-year Saturn cycle). The occasion: A talk I’m going to give for a group of elders tomorrow morning on the evolution of the GANG garden. Unfortunately, I thought I had until Friday, but it turns out to be Wednesday! So, despite Katarina’s help putting it into a powerpoint presentation, it will be very ragged and unfinished. However, I did take a bunch of photos this morning, for the finale of the talk, “Spring, 2015.” Pay attention especially to the final flower, same flower! — last two photos — two hours apart.
Yep, same lotus, last two slides, opens and closes with the sun.
Geez we’ve got a lot of squash . . .
