Our life has been a year of changes for before long; we will celebrate one year of making the move from Canada to Panama. For me the most symbolic images would be of the changes we’ve made in la casa; specifically in our outdoor space. I’ve chosen the front garden to illustrate this:
Tending the garden in Panama has meant slowing down, building our new life and adapting to the changes in us and our surroundings. When we moved into la casa the yard was hard, dry dirt. It didn’t take long to make it into our little oasis that we enjoy tending almost every day. Some of the plants we purchased from the vivero, many are extra plants from friend’s gardens and some were simply cuttings we found on our travels around the burg that we stuck in the ground, hoping they would grow. Like our plants we’ve been transplanted from one habitat and bloomed and grown in our new home in the sun.
