The Rose Garden

Posted by Mike on March 16, 2006

I work across from Capitol Park in Sacramento, CA. It’s a pretty great area to be and I tend to take walks through the park on breaks. It looks a little different at this time of year obviously and I can’t find a picture of the central fountain. What I found interesting today walking through was the symbolism in the garden. The fountain is surrounded by hearts. This matches up nicely with esoteric symbolism, particularly the heart and the rose, the heart with the fountain (in some tarot decks the cups cards that represent the element of water are changed to hearts). And the fountain with the hearts is the heart of the garden, smack dab in the middle of a cross.
