Inspire Community Garden - The Pheonix Rises from the Ashes


We attended an extra evening at the garden to burn some of the excess dry wood and branches that are of no use to us anymore so the bonfire began.

Whilst the bonfire was being attended I went to see if there was any growth in the vegetables in one day after the rainfall last night and was surprised at the day's growth.
I usually photograph the same vegetable like the pumpkin and the courgette so we can see the growth.

These tree stumps are "art in progress" as it is the start of a tree chair.

These pumpkins are growing so fast and with abundance.

Then the clouds started to make pictures in the sky.....

Then the Pheonix rises from the ashes...........

WIKIPEDIA - the free encyclopedia.

In Greek mythology, a phoenix or phenix (Greek: φοῖνιξ phoinixLatinphoenix, phœnix, fenix) is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. Associated with the Sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. According to some sources, the phoenix dies in a show of flames and combustion, although there are other sources that claim that the legendary bird dies and simply decomposes before being born again.[1] According to some texts, the phoenix could live over 1,400 years before rebirth.[2]HerodotusLucanPliny the ElderPope Clement ILactantiusOvid, and Isidore of Seville are among those who have contributed to the retelling and transmission of the phoenix motif.
In the historical record, the phoenix "could symbolize renewal in general as well as the sun, time, the Empiremetempsychosis,consecrationresurrection, life in the heavenly ParadiseChristMaryvirginity, the exceptional man, and certain aspects of Christian life".[3]

Was this Pheonix on my shoulders?

You can see in the few minutes the change of the broken cloud on the right and left wings of this pheonix, it's very spectacular to see.
If you believe in the Greek mythology are we regenerating this wasteland or am I rising again after a brain trauma? I suppose it could have many answers to many peoples questions.
It's like that movie line...."We're not alone!......"

Then it was time for marshmallows and berries......Yummy, Yummy......

The Pheonix has risen..........The Garden Grows...
