Row after row, all in a straight line. I often, actually everyday, look down from my 16th floor apartment at the villas below. This time of year especially… I miss my home.
The gardens and plants and backyards are so wonderful this time of year and I miss that. I love to watch the Chinese working in their gardens. They are perfectionists caring for their plants, flowers and vegetables. Out every day, early in the morning tending them. The way the gardens are arranged are just so inviting and eye pleasing. It has given David & I so many ideas how we want to revamp some of our green space when we get home. Now if we didn’t have to deal with the deer that like to eat everything!!
It is so interesting to watch Chinese gardeners. I am almost certain they still plant and garden according to the moon like many people did generations ago.
Just as the moon pulls the tides in the oceans, it also pulls upon the subtle bodies of water, causing moisture to rise in the earth, which encourages growth. The highest amount of moisture is in the soil at this time, and tests have proven that seeds will absorb the most water at the time of the full moon.
Well I am not sure about gardening but the moon was beautiful last night from my bedroom window and tonight it will be completely full. I love to lay in bed at night and fall asleep at night looking at the city lights and if I wake…it’s cool that the moon is my nightlight!
