Keeping A Secret in Our Gardens

We have been quite secretive about what our plans are for the “next step” now that yoga classes have ceased here at the gardens (previous post Synchronicity and the Stepping Stone). Many of our friends, prior yoga students, photographers and others remain curious about what we are planning since we have all but curtailed garden visits.

We have several areas that will be taking on new looks and we will be offering a new, locally-unique experience with the completed expansion.  But for now, we are going to focus on the largest project at hand. In the interest of having some fun, Dave and I decided to lead everyone along on our journey by giving clues as to what we’ve got planned. Sometimes you just gotta go with the flow and do what feels right.

In order for our followers to have an equal playing field, we are going to give you the clues that we’ve shared on Facebook up to this point. This isn’t a contest just yet 😉

Clue #1: A photo of the rainbow shared on Facebook on July 6, 2015

Here’s what I said: “Oh wow! This is just amazing. Dave and I took a walk outside to talk about our expansion and a rainbow appeared dead center of where it’s taking place! This is giving me the chills.”rainbow 2015-07-06 010Clue #2: A video of Dave trimming bamboo and making a pile of bamboo poles was shared on Crabtree Gardens, LLC Facebook page on July 11, 2015.

I said:”Giggling at this one. I love Dave Crabtree he is such a good sport! Stay tuned for more clues of our expansion.”

The video was posted to Facebook. My apologies, the mp4 file won’t upload so the best I can do is this snapshot. dave with bambooHere’s the caption: Here’s a video of what’s going on in the gardens today. We said earlier that we felt like we were in the islands waking up to the smell of our mimosa tree. Dave took it to the next level-;) so keep watching for what’s happening with our awesome expansion. We will keep giving you clues.

Clue #3: This event was shared on Facebook with the first clue word.

I said: “Get your Zen on with Michael Barata out on the decks next Friday August 14. This will be a special garden experience. The decks will be surrounded with TIKI torches, which speaking of, is a tiny hint to our “next step” !!!!
