// A desert gem. Massive succulents and cacti vibrate like heat waves. Large
leaves of aloe provide shade over twisted, dusty paths, while rare desert
flowers soak under the harsh red sun. Sand swirls in zen patterned murals
throughout the garden. Rusted rocks, and sunbathing lizards that chirp like
birds. The air smells spicy yet sweet. It is dry and thriving.
// Ancient roots weave together to form a wooden gate. It leads to a narrow
cobblestone pathway. Shady and warm, the breeze sounds like contented sighs.
The flowers here are pink and big – bigger as you, their open petals as you
pass by. Tiny fairies dart to-and-fro, trailing a sparkling pollen with them.
You feel drowsy and lie down in a spongy patch of earth to the side of the
path. You sink into the moss and look up at the clouds.
// The sky is the most vibrant blue you’ve ever seen. Clumsy bumblebees bounce
off petals, each flower making a different sound; some silly, some soft. Just
like laughter. The garden is unorganized; grass full of clover, dappled with
daisies and yellow tulips and buttercups. You pluck dandelions, bring them to
your lips and blow – seeds become bubbles that never pop. They just drift
endless through the field like clouds in the blue.
// A quaint garden that flourishes under the full moon. The flora is lush and
dark and cottony, illuminated by softly glowing white flowers that only bloom
at night. There are no paths – only small streams full of pearl and moonstone
pebbles, with little waterfalls that trickle into reflective, silver pools.
Chamomile and vanilla linger. It feels familiar and sleepy. Fireflies float
around, and twinkle like suspended stars.
// A golden gate surrounds an opulent oasis, bathed eternally in golden evening
lights. Sunflowers tower overhead, marigolds greet your feet. Petals transform
into black butterflies with velveteen wings that graze your skin and leave
traces of exotic perfume. A refracting mosaic path pieced of mirror shards and
colored glass cause the entire landscape to glitter blindingly. It is warm and
radiant and there is song in the air.
// Simple and soothing. A prim and proper garden enclosed by a white picket
fence. Wisteria stretches up trellises and across pergolas, drooping down just
enough to tickle your cheeks. Origami hummingbirds dart from flower to flower,
lavender to dahlia to pansy. Hanging wicker chairs for resting and reading in.
Shady and quiet; smelling of calming English tea leaves and clean linen.
// A dainty, silver-spun gate that’s always open. Everything is shades of red,
lush to the point of overgrowth. A labyrinth with rows and rows of roses, all
bathed in dewdrops – every petal sparkling in the morning sun. The smells of
honeysuckle and orange blossom tickle your nose. Songbirds with glass wings
whistle symphonies, and perch atop beautifully crafted statues. It is light and
lovely in every way.
// A marshy garden, cattails and little white bell flowers. The faint sound of
constant, gentle rain. Floating stones carry you across deep, pond-like
puddles. Benevolent spirits drift up from old stone wishing wells and hide
among the thick, rolling fog. You wave at them. Beneath a weeping willow is a
place just for you to sit, surrounded by pale pink peonies and smooth quartz
crystals. Magical, and lonely.
// A tremendous grove full of what is usually small. Blades of grass as
tall as trees, a canopy of tangled roots above cast shadows in filtered
sunlight. Giant opal boulders and mossy pathways. The heavy scent of soil,
rosemary and other herbs permeate the air. Mushrooms of all shapes, sizes and
colors grow like wildflowers. A living adventure, with something bigger than
you around every corner.
// A garden that would be envied by Greek Gods. Composed and elegant, pristine
rows of emerald hedges. Ivy wraps around ornate stone pillars like an ancient
lace. Marble fountains overflow with rich, red wine. Large, decorative vases
spill over with white roses, and tresses of violet flowers hang down from arched
pergolas. It sounds of harps and silence.
// An abandoned glass green house with translucent windows. It appears old and
vacant from the outside but inside – everything is luminous. Neon dragonflies
zip around in slow motion, strange flowers vibrate and release tiny glowing
orbs of pollen that hang in the air. In every direction you can see only a
night sky – as if you were walking through the Milky Way.
// A tranquil lagoon, comprised up of interconnected pools, and blooming with
enormous aquatic flora – impossibly large lilies and lotus. The calm waters
are the deepest shade of aquamarine, and you float idly through aboard a large
lily pad. A pink lotus unfurls with a soft sigh under your touch. Crystalline
reeds echo hollow tunes, and massive orange koi fish drift slowly just beneath
the surface. It is peaceful.
