A friend told us to check out the National Arboretum and especially the Bonsai areas. So we did this past week. What a delight! First we explored the Herb gardens. Who could ever guess there are so many varieties of lavender or of pepper plants? There are many exotic plants I had never seen, and numerous theme gardens that opened my eyes, nose and heart! Then on to the bonsai displays. I had seen bonsais previously but never thought much of them. The bonsais at the Arboretum are so exceptionally awesome I was ecstatic. Each small bonsai brought the spirit of great trees into a tiny space that was alive with beauty and rich life. Then I discovered scholar's stones, stones of rich texture, shapes and color that invite the viewer to meditate… to leave behind all the rest of this crazy world and soar the colors, textures, lights and darks, ups and downs on the particular rock. Don;t take my word for it! Go meditate with a scholar's stone and be blessed !
