I sure wish I could have a rose garden this summer. Unfortunately, the only way that that would be possible is if I planted it in my secret garden — my imagination. But, with that said, I wonder what would happen if I took that idea and made it visible? What could bridge this imaginary world with the visible world? I know the answer: an imaginary rose seed could be planted on a piece of paper instead of in dirt. And to make my point, I’m going to do it right on the dot.
Idea planted on paper.
What an beautiful unfolding. Now, I wonder just how many beautiful potentials this symmetrical image could flourish as on a paper garden? Well, since I design journal covers, why not start there? Perfect. Now, I know the garden’s size and shape: 12.7cm x 20.32cm, which is, 5 inches x 8 inches.
There would even be a little spiral fence on the left to keep a dinosaur out should the little flower patch be on his path.
Don’t believe me? Think I’m making it up? Just CLICK here to see.
I could plant the roses in perfectly even rows and see if they grow shoulder to shoulder?
I could plant them in rows, and if the wind turns up they in turn would turn out accordingly.
I could plant them in a pattern giving the impression of what raindrops falling from the sky and landing on the ground would look like.
Now to really go all out, or inward, and get kaleidoscopic...
Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I’m going to go sit and see if I can’t imagine some other colours besides red. Perhaps some pink and yellow. oOooh yellow. It would be fun to have some daisies too…
That's all for now.
