After the rain11.07.2021
Today was a typical lazy Sunday, quiet and overcast, with occasional showers that ended up in a perhaps one and a half hour long rain. I needn't tell you how soothing it was slumbering while listening to its soft sound. And when the rain stopped it was almost evening but the sun was still at the very edge of the sky, spreading its warm orange blanket over the land for only a few minutes before it disappeared over the horizon. What a sight! I grabbed my camera and got out to capture the moment.

Ever since I was there in the middle of the lawn I realized the moment captured me. It got me wholly and irreversibly. I stood there enchanted by the spell the garden cast on me. Every time I added a new plant to my garden or made a new bed I knew I was creating something special but the reality enhanced by the years of growing overwhelmed me. I stood there thinking what an adventure it is making a garden and watching it grow. And how at these stupid times wherever you want to go you come across some sort of pandemic bully this place fills me. No need to travel half the globe for excitement and new experience.

I stepped towards two trees near the patio remembering how small they were when I put them there. And what they look like now. My philosophical mood took longer that I expected and the sun was soon gone. So today there are only a few pictures showing the 'before and after' state.

These beautiful compound leaves belong to Rubylace honey locust. They emerge rich maroon and mature to chocolate and bronze. This tree manifests the most common plan of all trees - to reach the sun despite all obstacles. Even if it should loose its natural umbrella-like canopy surrounded by many other competing crowns.

By the way, do you know why I set up my own garden centre? Because when I was young and landscaping my own garden I could not get any decent-sized plants in Czech garden centres. So I set out on a trip around some European nurseries hunting for larger and quality plants. And here they are. For everyone. So it is no woner that I was thrilled when in 2008 I got hold of a large Filifera cypress. I did not make a picture then, only a few years later. But still - the difference in time is still something to admire.

Today's last stop is at this lady fern. I love its fine structure and soft green colour. To enhance its colour I put a nice stone right behind it and I was quite proud ot it as I do not consider myself a skillful stonemason. Now, almost 15 years later the fern is larger than the stone so my setting is invisible. Never mind, I will show off with something else next time :-)

Looking around me with my eyes open wide I like to compare everything with a human life. Including gardens. I must confess it took me some time to get to like perennials as I had rather been a tree person, admiring their strong branches, thick trunks, and crowns reaching for heaven. But bowing down to see these small creatures with soft leaves and gentle flowers enriched me with an entirely different perspective. They are like babies. Before spring you know they are there, somewhere in the ground, being prepared for a new life. And when their time comes they spring up from the ground, courageously, unaware of anything that might happen. They unroll their soft foliage and push up stems with flower buds eagerly soaking the sun and warmth, enjoying every moment and getting ready for maturity and reproduction. Just like humans.

And we watch their hurried race, feeling much more insecure than them, trying to watch and correct every step they make. As if we did not realize that this is their life, not ours, and we are here just to be around, perhaps only in advisory capacity if ever needed.

Let’s watch these babies today, without interfering, with no need to see their peak performance, enjoying their youth and brave growth. Just give a hand when too many enemies appear but let them learn to fight.
