The past year has brought me the good fortune of developing a close friendship with my region’s premier Feng Shui Consultant. A side benefit to a rich friendship has been my absorption of major Feng Shui principles. If you have an interest in learning these, I suggest following Brenda’s facebook page. Useful suggestions are offered in a digestable, piecemeal format. Brenda is generous.
I utilized the Feng Shui knowledge to plant a specialty gardening project at a Bed and Breakfast in Lake George called Somewhere in Time. This is an event center, most weekends a wedding is hosted.
Each bed has a gemstone, or a pile of several gemstones, to reflect the signifigance of it’s location. (Feng Shui information- for further clarification, see Brenda Jenks.) Most of the gemstones were acquired on a visit to Gemstar Gemstones in New Hamshire, although Alyson Epstein at Bay St. Beadworks helped out with some last minute, and luminous pieces of Rose Quartz.
This is the Spirituality and Knowledge Corner. A chunk of Blue Agate is the stone, Blue Lupine, Great Blue Lobelia (which will be much more majestic when it establishes!), Perrenial Forget-Me-Not, and a shaggy Phlox reign here. Most of the designs incorporate native plants; almost all will attract butterflies or songbirds.
