Last summer I completed the infrastructure for a zen garden for my wife. This little Buddha found itself well placed under my dwarf Japanese maple tree. It got quickly enveloped by some ground hostas, so I moved it this year to sit on a rock near the water fountain I rigged from a reclaimed cement planter and a solar powered water fountain. The dragon lilies I planted last season have spread and now offer the glorious cover through with we can see this very zen figure. As you can see, the weather is slowly taking away the black paint on the statue and adding even greater wabi-sabi feelings to the whole garden.

Somehow the scratchy, old Mississippi blues I’ve got playing on Spotify adds to the wabi-sabi-ness of it all.
