The symbol of my garden….
In many places throughout my gardens, my children and I have built inuksuks. It has gradually become the symbol of my xericstyle garden. My native roots come out in me in ways I don’t understand in the moment, but reflection later reveals…
The inuksuk to many, and to me, says….come here….there is goodness. Come here….there are resources. Come here…there is light…there is love…there is happiness…..
Just like the Inuit peoples of northern Canada build an inuksuk to say…this way is shelter, or…this way the fishing is plentiful. I build these to welcome visitors human and otherwise. Welcome bees and butterflies, there is nectar here. Welcome frogs, there is shelter here. Welcome friends, there is love here.
