Labyrinth Gardens Update

We are still working on restoring and expanding our Garden Of Labyrinths.

The newest work is the marking out of the new Triple Spiral Labyrinth. It has been challenging with three re-builds due to miscalculations and then rain showers turning the site into a mud bath. I will be glad when this is planted so the plants drink the water.

Here is the 'womb' spiral, it's taking shape and you can see the connecting path forming.


Here is the 'left breast' spiral area, but I need to cut away more of the wild grass so I can complete this.


The 'right breast' spiral here is starting to take shape, bit of a mud bath at present, but it is November.

This shot features the centre part that will have a centre feature.


Meanwhile, Claire was here a few days and did substantial tidy up and mulching within the Tree Labyrinth. It is starting to look naked now without its leaves. Here are a few pics after her grand work






I have not done any further work on the new Herb Labyrinth for a few days. When the nights get modern again, in a few days, I will put out strawberry plants along its squiggly entrance. Here are some latest pics ...





Strawberries to go into this wiggling entrance ...


I believe from next Spring our visitors are going to have quite an adventure here, among the labyrinths, when the current bare mud transforms into plants, wild flowers and walkways. More new of progress soon :-)
