Anaïs Nin once penned, “We are like sculptors, constantly carving out of others the image we long for, need, love or desire, often against reality, against their benefit, and always, in the end, a disappointment, because it does not fit them.”
But like this image above proves to us, some things are meant to just weave and be. A walk in the woods can teach a simple lesson about not overcomplicating our own garden space with elements that might fit someone else’s landscape naturally.
A Monday June reminder as we scurry about making our exterior spaces shine and glean, often trying to compete with what’s being created on someone else’s property. Find what fits you best. Don’t sculpture something that in the end is a disappointment. Make it fit you, your lifestyle, but most of all, the natural contours of your landscape.
