Yellow crocosmia, grey-blue sea holy and purple verbena with white hebe.

Paul stood trial in front of the harshest of men, Nero. He had no-one to speak for him, he spoke with God by his side. Nero listened, light pierced his soul, he trembled but only for a minute. Nero committed suicide at 32 years of age and Paul yes he died too but he said “I have fought the fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness , which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day , and not only me, but all them also that love His appearing.”

2 Timothy 4: 7,8
Yellow crocosmia, purple verbena, eryngium variifolium / eryngo / sea holly and white hebe.

I looked at the word combination. A word simply used to look at what I had in the brown jug. I then looked at other related words and chose the two words I would like to use to describe the planting in the garden and they were medley and coalesce. Both words special in sound and sight. I want a connected whole but a varied mixture.

We cannot tell what may happen to us in the medley of life.Β  But we can decide what happens in us – how we can take it, what we do with it – and that is what really counts in the end.

The bed is sloped so the sea holly will go at the back where I  will put in sand and stones and in theory water will drain down. It is said they are captivating plants with unique clusters of blooms. (The lady who sold it to me said that should she see it in her garden she would pull it out immediately as a dreadful weed🀣 I then asked if I had to pay for it!) Then the crocosmia will be in clumps mid way, in nutrient rich, well drained but lightly moist slightly acid soil. ( My sister in law then said she had taken out piles from her garden. All they did was make bulbs and leaves with no flowers! 😭)The verbena being tall will be between and slightly in front of the crocosmia. ( I know this plant and have grown it from seed. I will only cut off the tall flowers when new shoots form❀️) The hebe shrub with white fluffy spires has opened up with the heat and fallen over. I will need to take some branches off and give it some water. I hope it works.  I like the combination in the brown jug , let me see if it works in the garden.

When the artist activates his being, awakens to his surroundings,

and sets himself the task of creating, connections are made out of conscious awareness that returnΒ  coalesced as inspiration.

Eric Maisel ( American psychotherapist and Atheist)

After a certain high level of technical skill is achieved science and art tend to coalesce in aesthetics, plasticity, and form. The greatest scientists are artists as well.
