I love the time I spend in the garden everyday. Just walking around for five minutes, looking at the plants, enjoying the shade and listening to the birds It makes a difference in my spirit when I start getting stressed or feeling just a little tired or bored with the work. I talk with the plants, I love to gently touch them.feel their texture and enjoy the fragrance of the different kinds of flowers. I am also amazed how they respond to my love and interest in them and I notice that the corners of the garden that I neglect or pay less attention the plants don’t look as happy.
If you have a garden try to develop this interest. It is a wonderful way to distress and relax. If you don’t have a garden just fill the house with plants and you’ll notice the change it will make in your life if you spend a few minutes watering them, cleaning them of old leaves,changing them around and reppoting them when needed.See how inspired it makes you feel.
From the Garden
I am also trying to grow herbs, but the ground here is dry and sandy that they were hardly growing so I just transplant them into pots and put them by the kitchen door where I can see them all the time and keep the soil wet. It is amazing how happier they look in just a few days and I was able to use a few chillies already. It makes an incredible difference to have some fresh ingredients handy as it brings a spark of inspiration to the cooking adding more taste and colour.
