A Little Magic

Today’s image is one that invites the imagination to come out and play.

What is it?

A Zen area of raked gravel?

A remnant of ancient pagan ritual?

Any other ideas?

Actually, It’s an ivy-covered stump (at least, I think it is) surrounded by a lawn covered in a blanket of fallen cherry blossom.

Fleeting, and beautiful.

Now, that ancient pagan temple…



Edited to add:  Sometimes my gardening students are mischievous.  The identity of the ‘object’ under the ivy was not disclosed.  I assumed.  Now I’ve been given a clue:  It can only be used on sunny days.

A sundial then!  But it is still fallen cherry blossom.
