A Yen for Zen

I helped my Mom and Dad make a Zen Garden for one of our clients!
First, we picked out some rocks that symbolized Buddha and some animals.
We found a big fish, a snail and a frog.
Then, we made a bed of crushed granite, placed the animals so they were looking at the Buddha stone and raked a pattern into the gravel.

Meanwhile back home....
our neighbor has been making these lovely garden screens.
He recently gave us this one, as a memorial, for Dad's father who recently passed away.
We are so thrilled!

Here are some of Arnie's other pieces. 

I give it 4 paws up.
If you have a 'Yen for Zen' and are interested in a lovely garden screen, send us an e-mail to wyattsriot2010 at gmail dot com. Arnie's prices are very reasonable....shipping, probably not so reasonable. Just drive over here and we will set you up!!



  1. They're beautiful screens and make the garden look lovely.

  17. Beautiful screens - sadly we live too far for buying them. We have a wooden Buddha in our conservatory and have tried chewing it a bit and I think we dogs might make that Zen garden not so peaceful if we started to play there. You and your peeps made it so serene - love from Magic x

  18. The Zen garden you and your peeps made is LOVELY.
    The garden Screen looks perfect in your garden.
    I am so very much sorry to hear about your dad's dad. What a wonderful way to think of him.
