The Lag

The lag is the huge space between all your hard work and the results. The U symbolises the lag. From one side of the U you can see the destination on the other side. But often there is a delay between the effort that has been put into an activity and the result, in fact it can seem as if the result will never come, and people give up all too often. We need to measure our time on horticultural time rather than by hours and minutes. You can’t snap your fingers in the garden, you don’t plant and harvest immediately, there is always a lag. The lag also symbolises Good Friday to Easter Sunday, the bottom of the U is Easter Saturday. It doesn’t look as if anything is going on, but just wait for it, there will be resurrection.
