I accomplished another goal for the garden redesign project today when I purchased some seven colorful tiger tails and three long leaves from Girly Steel to set up in the high summer garden called August Dreams Garden.
The garden designer originally suggested and chose plants that will bloom primarily in late summer and fall for this garden area, which means that for the rest of the year, there's not much going on in it.
Now there will be colorful tiger tails bobbing and dancing in the breeze year round.
Collectively, I'm calling this grouping "Catch a Tiger by the Tail". You may interpret its meaning any way you wish or not at all.
But if someone asks me, I'll tell them it means to conquer your fears, grab that tiger by the tail and see what happens. The worst that can happen is you have to let go. The best that could happen is you might tame that tiger and be ready to move on to a bigger tiger.
Nope, I'm not telling you what my tigers are. I'll grab those tails in due time, in and out of the garden. Or maybe, I'll grab the tails by the tigers?
It's good to have reminders to try new things, to conquer fears.
It's even better to have a new garden sculpture made by a local artist be that reminder.
