What about growing words in the garden? Sweet words, inspiring words, poetic words and funny words … These varieties are not planted, but are inscribed on a slate, engraved on a piece of wood or even invited on the furniture of garden … And when the leaves fall and the flowers are more rare, these words dress the garden of a supplement of soul.
In the garden, we display a welcome message on a slate
Written in white chalk, a nice word of welcome immediately gives the tone. This garden is cultivated for others, and you are invited to enjoy it, even if you are just passing through.
And do not think that this type of slate is reserved for gardens open to the public, it can instead appear at the entrance of any space cultivated with pride by its owner. And if this garden is on a balcony or window sill, it’s even better!
A poem to read in the open
Is not the garden the best place to declaim poetry? Especially when poems slip into the landscape, written on a slate or engraved on a wooden board. And why not print your favorite poems on an A4 sheet, cover them with clear plastic to protect them from the rain, and hang them on a tree branch? To hike or bubble your head full of alexandrins…
A quirky or humorous message
If you do not have the soul of a poet, make your garden a place that invites you to smile with funny and offbeat messages! Invent names of alleys and roads (alley of the nasturtiums, road of happiness), transform garden furniture (bench lovers…), turn away local sayings or display false bans. By the way, did you know that it was forbidden to trample dreams?
Or simply the name of the varieties!
Finally, if you are a pragmatic gardener full of common sense, do not forget to sow in your garden labels to recognize the name of the varieties. These words will also be full of poetry for those who read them with envy …
