IN-A-GADDA-DA-VIDA


paphiopedilum, 'crusty the clown' Hybrid.
Originally uploaded by andrewstenning.

Gardening is a great craft, it is a sort of alchemy - with many treasures to amalgam!, It is meaningful and gardeners have had a shared philosophy with artists for years. Most artists are gardeners and the natural world is POST POST MODERN with 12 dimensions.
In the UK last year this was revered by three important exhibitions. 'A Gardeners Labyrinth' at the National portrait gallery was a photographic record of artists and gardeners (Beautiful, Impassioned and personal). 'Art of the garden' at Tate Britian was an eclectic mix of art inspired by gardens, a good place also to do some sociology 'little middle Britian CHAV's next to the Hoxton FINS and Shoreditch BUNDLE. Outside an enormous cut-out photograph mounted on steel of a Paphiopedilum orchid by the artist Marc Quinn, this inspired the buy above which is my countdown clock for February, and is named for my post post modern indoor garden.
The other show IN-A-GADDA-DA-VIDA (in the garden of Eden) was not lyrical pastoralism but for me more electrifying and just as laudable as the other shows, The exhibition was joint vision by three YBA's, Angus Fairhurst,Sarah Lucas and Damian Hirst, It was the Eden of uncertainty, existence and a search for meaning, a highly interesting example of our garden today. When fragile beauty just arrives each of my working day's it's hard not to think about the state of play!, Gardener's have to be theorists like the artists and art and gardening have a monstrous bond, i would sooner see a Damian Hirst in my garden than a willow weaver from the bronze age any day, As artists like him get the point, good gardens like art are pragmatic and a labyrinth of insight, they also embrace a very important fact that WE ARE NOT DIVINE! so i am off to look again at Vincent,s sunflower's.

I just came across a great gardening website called AtlGardening.com*. Not only does it feature articles for the gardening enthusiast, but has become a great sound garden
resource for me in my landscaping effort. The webmaster of this site has recently added a book section that seemed to expand everytime I go there.
What I like about it is that I get instant access to the book and don't have to wait for the book(s) to arrive which of course saves me money.....no shipping charges.... in some cases. Great idea. I love it. You must check it out today. Let me know what you think.

Do you want to grow your own House Plants, Flowers, Trees and Shrubs for FREE....Grow them to landscape your yard, grow them for fun and for profit....Growing small plants in your backyard is one of the most rewarding things you will ever do in your life. Not to mention the money you can make. Getting started in this home based business is really easy. All you have to do is start rooting cuttings of your favorite plants (I'll show you how to do that), and you are off and running. Any time you have a few extra minutes just stick a few cuttings. Before you know it you will have thousands of plants valued at several thousand dollars.

The term labyrinth is often used interchangeably with maze, but modern scholars of the subject use a stricter definition. For them, a maze is a tour puzzle in the form of a complex branching passage with choices of path and direction; sportsbook, while a single-path ("unicursal") labyrinth has only a single Eulerian path to the center. A labyrinth has an unambiguous through-route to the center and back and is not designed to be difficult to navigate. http://www.enterbet.com
