New Mexico Flavored Zen

Moved a little concrete and rock today for a New Mexico flavored Zen garden. It isn’t exactly right yet, but it will come together.

The concrete barriers were mostly buried in the front yard but should clean up in a good rain.  I filled it with crusher fines, also inherited, plus my natural rock.  I will move these or other rocks around until it is pleasing, then rake.  I can also bury an alcohol gel fuel container for fire on cool summer evenings.

The picture is taken from my bench and this is in the middle of my French Potager, with German hugelkultur beds. Not to mention a riotous mixture of flowers, herbs, wild edibles, fruits and vegetables.  No purist in this household.

About rebeccatreeseed

I am a naturalist raised by naturalists. Treeseed is my earned name, while Rebecca is my birth name. I am of Northern European descent, with a quarter Irish.quarter thrown in. I suspect I was a product of northern invaders into Ireland into Ireland. but hard to say since DNA disproved the family story about Apache blood! I have found some odd ancestors to replace them. Last year I bought 5 acres of pinyon-juniper forest on the side of a mountain in Santa Fe County, New Mexico. I am fulfilling a lifetime dream of a cabin in the mountains and a food forest that will feed me and local wildlife. I want to share this new phase of my life with others that might be interested.

  1. Looks wonderful! No purists here either… good gardens are always a unique mixture of styles and influences.
