Spiral Herb Bed C2

Second concept design of five. The idea of having a more tropical theme in mind for this one. 🙂 Centered on the warmth of the high summers New Zealand can offer, I thought about how one could incorporate native herbs I know of in the United States and those you couldn’t really find growing all over the country. 😉 A “mini-paradise” that is multi-functional as well as pretty.

From Borage, Chamomile, Cinnamon Basil, Passion Fruit, and various other bee loving flowers. I am thinking of creating an herbal bed which is more centered in calming herbs. Holistic Herbs which help reduce daily stresses the body intakes from the outside world. And herbs which help sooth the soul; like Lavender for example [used in aromatherapy: Essential Oil therapy]. 🙂

This raised bed shape is of the Moon Goddess symbol. ❤
The Moon Goddess Symbol [The triple moon] represents the Maiden, Mother, and Crone as the waxing, full, and waning moon. It is also associated with feminine energy, mystery and psychic abilities. 🙂

Meadow Raised Bed 1 of 3

Wanting to incorporate designs which are of our roots; this raised bed is in essence of a Celtic Symbol known as the Triskelion. Its three symbolic extensions consists the meaning of:

Creation, Preservation, and Destruction.
Power, Intellect, and Love.
Past, Present, and Future.
Spirit, Mind, and Body.
Creator, Destroyer, and Sustainer.

There are other meanings to the symbol which are not listed here. As for what the Triskelion means to me personally as an individual, I ignore the rest. 🙂 The three grains we shall be growing and harvesting will be surrounded in a wild flower field. Two other raised beds of three total Celtic shapes, will be in the wild flower meadow. A great mutual resource for both animal, honeybee, human and environment alike. 🙂

Attached to the drawing concept, is three double sided snippets from a delightful catalog: “2016 Catalog: Bountiful Gardens, Heirloom, Untreated, Open-Pollinated Seeds for Sustainable Growing.” It’s a shame Daniel and I will not be able to order from them when we move to New Zealand. They do not ship overseas. Even so, I am quite happy to use them as an inspiration for the Butterfly Forest Homestead, and that their business is helping bring Earth-loving goodness to the commoner people. 🙂

*Applauds in great smiles to the sweetheart business, Bountiful Gardens for all of their hard devoted work to help others and the world.* 😀  ❤
