Fun with Relationship Corner @ Inside Awareness



This is our first year of devoting time to creating an essential connection to our relationship corner of our landscape.

Our first step was installing playful and eye-catching paper lanterns to bring attention and represent movement (change) in this corner.  This corner is on an angle which means we are  missing a small corner of the relationship corner.

The second step we took was to consider a troublesome unused gate that extends the fence and has steps and a pathway leading up to it.   To support it appearing as a fence visually bamboo in pots have been added to extend the inner bamboo fence line along this fence.  A planter with white and pink English daisies have been added to represent the colour of the relationship corner.  Red nasturtiums  seeds have been added that will enhance the colours in this corner.

Thirdly we cut back five feet of ivy and overhanging branches from next door to reclaim this corner.  A messy job leaving us with a scared face of tangled ivy branches.  In the past few weeks the Ivy is covering this scared face with new Ivy leaves creating a natural fence!

The four step was to paint a table and chairs red to bring attention to this area creating an invitation for gathering.

Currently our fifth step has to begin tackling an invasion of buttercups and ivy vines along the fence, a perfect space to add a small veggie patch!  Our hope is to visual encourage a deepening connection to natural food sources as part of ones wellness program, including ours!

We are excited about the potential of this corner and having fun creating it, or rather supporting nature to create it!  Currently we are considering adding a bark pathway around the garden patch and along the fence to reach the side of the building.  Two border choices being considered is round (yin) rocks or driftwood also with rounded edges.
