Turn

Oak tree turned into a sun dial by the evening sun

Art in the garden, Grass spiral.

swirls like the ocean

running on the shore of your

imagination

The spiral made in my lawn this year has been thoroughly enjoyed by many – children always run around spirals – turning, turning, turning, always turning, always running, always laughing – it is a delight!

Easy to do – you cut the lawn on a high setting and then starting in the middle, mow outwards on a lower setting, keeping a gap of the mower width to your right or left, whichever way you are moving. I’d love to know if you give it a go.

I first cut a spiral back in 1999 and then came the Waves, and the Grid

What pattern would you create?

Just had to include this wonderful piece of graphic design:

graphic design, from Trust Me I'm a Designer

I saw this on a site called ‘Trust Me I’m a Designer’. Clever don’t you think!

It’s your turn!

Leave a link to your photos in the comments so that we can all see what turns up this week. 😉

Joining in with Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge – his prompt words this week are: Ocean and Shore

  4. Wonderful haiku for such a unique idea to spiral the imagination. That tree really accentuates the beauty of the scene. I can hear the joy and laughter of the children at their play. ❤

  8. P.S. Time for a flight of fancy. What if the spiral were magic and running around it actually took a child somewhere else?

    • Absolutely fabulous! Yes! Laurie – go for it!!!
      I did a year long training in Shamanism back in the mid 90s – labyrinths, spirals, dance and the drum beat ….. definitely took me into different realms of altered consciousness, into a magical dreamland where I could see the wonders of the connectedness of all things and the boundless beauty of the Universe. I thought then that if only children were given this opportunity to access this inner world safely and without the use of unnatural substances they might be able to deal with growing up in our crazy world a little better and happier. ❤ ❤ ❤
      I do love our little riffs!

  9. Oh, nice! The spiral is my favorite shape. Wonderful to have it on your lawn where kids can run around it and a tree becomes a sundial.

  11. I LOVE your spiral! What is it about that shape that is so compelling? And the photos of the children running captures the mood perfectly. I think I’d like to be a graphic designer in a future life–that design is so excellent!

    • I did consider doing a Graphic Design Course once upon a time, but I think my mind is too chaotic to come up with such neat designs – love them though. I love that you have your future life planned! me too – several!

  12. Wonderful, very similiar to the one in the Quaker Community Garden I wrote about in one of my 30 day wild posts. Have to be done barefoot.

  13. I have had a spiral cut in my front lawn for the past few years. I have met more of my neighbors than before we had it due to them stopping to ask what it meant. ha… There have also been people just driving by that stopped to ask what it was. Just this past week a traveling salesman asked if he could walk it before leaving. If nothing else it is a great conversation starter. How it began

    • Oh! how wonderful Lisa. How lovely to have the spiral out front. I don’t know of anyone else with one in their garden. Touching response from the salesman. I often create one on a sandy beach for the children to run round as well and we often have interesting conversations with passers by.
      Thank you so much for the link – it looks magnificent!

  14. One of the Dan Brown books is full of designs like you ‘turn’. And there I was thinking you had designed it your self! Like the spiral but I don’t have a lawn. Did do this on my old paving though in chalk. https://rainbowjunkiecorner.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/0448-paving-on-right-side.jpg More a maze than a spiral!
