A Japanese Meditation Garden
Sharpen your senses
A dwarf Scots pine's gnarled branches represent endurance. Diane encourages visitors to sharpen their senses and focus on details like shape. Diane prepares guests for the experience of her stroll garden, but, as she puts it, what happens during the visit is up to the viewer. Japanese gardens, she says, can encourage insights about how to live our lives; about fears; about recognizing a core of beauty in everything.
