Love Stands Broken

No, this isn’t an angst poem. Not exactly. The storm that whipped through Minneapolis with hail yesterday evening snapped the stems of two Love Lies Bleeding plants at the entrance to the labyrinth. Since these were volunteers which re-seeded from a couple of plants we bought last year, it’s not a financial thing. It’s just that they were growing up so much stronger and sturdier than the prior year. They didn’t even need staking. Now I’m wondering if I had them staked, if they would have made it through the storm better. Sigh

The good news is there are still other volunteer LLBs which made it through fine. We aren’t tearing the broken ones up yet. We’ll see if they survive, er, topless.

I’ll update you as to how it turns out.

Visitors are orange

At least they were the other day. I was sitting down after a round of weeding, when a monarch butterfly came to dance all around me . . . of course I didn’t have my camera and I didn’t want to disturb its play. Then, while the monarch was still flying circles, an orange cardinal showed up.  I’m used to seeing them more of a red color. But there they both were, and me without my camera.

 Just goes to show, you never know who’s going to be at the labyrinth at any given moment.

Labyrinth Open!

The labyrinth is now available for walking! We are absolutely thrilled to be able to provide this space for individual (free) and group (if closed, there is a fee) use.

We will be updating the labyrinth pages with lots and lots of photos and information over the three weeks.

Meanwhile, come on out and enjoy!
