Zen garden from drift wood
MaFe’s holydays in Jutland…
1. The little Zen garden.
2. At the workshop of the summerhouse.
3. Making the box.
4. Dovetails or perhaps eagle tails due to the size…
5. I put plastic inside so the sand would not run out.
6. An old hanger became a garden tool for making the waves.
The coast by Thy, Jutland, Denmark.
So back from holydays, a wonderful time in the North of Jutland, Denmark.
Had some wonderful walks by the beautiful coast and found some drift wood there that was calling my name…
So back to the summerhouse we had borrowed from some friends.
Hmmmmm…. what does this wood want to become…
I felt in peace up here in Jutland, with the wonderful open landscape, the horizon and the silence.
A Zen garden!
Yes it makes sense, the wood that had traveled the sea, the beautiful stones we collected on the beach and sand.
A small garden where nature can be imitated and the sand becomes the waves of the sea.
The house we had borrowed also had a small workshop, here I managed to find the basic tools needed.
And soon I had a moment of Zen, making this little garden!
I left the garden in the summerhouse, hoping that it will bring joy to our friends that borrowed us the house.
I hope this could be to some inspiration, who knows perhaps inspiration to some Zen time.
