A Zone for Zen

A garden is a great place to relax. Of course, knowing that I need to start weeding can be a distraction, but forget all that for a moment! I spotted these Asian inspired garden features in Cleveland at the APLD Conference. Features can be big or small - but they all add calm to a garden space. Is this umbrealla a treasure only found in Bali or a fabu shop? Think again - it is from Pier 1! And before we take it too seriously, be funny - like this meditating frog from Campania. He makes me smile and relax at the same time. How about you?
