Gardening heals your soul!

While out watering my plants I realized how much I rely on them. Not only for nourishment but for support. My plants do not judge me (unless I do not care for them), they do not argue with me and all in all they love me. At least in my mind. I never realized that until today when I was watering them with my youngest. My daughter is a green thumb as well and loves the outdoors and nature as much as I do. Honestly it is a trait that both of my Grandparents had that continued through all of us.
My garden may be small now but it is beautiful, green and lush. Outside we have a lime tree, blueberry bush, tomato plant, two strawberry plants and some dark pink Asiatic Lilies. Inside I have several herbs, green onions, bell peppers, daisies (from an amazing friend) and three house plants. Funny how I say that isn't much. I grew up with my Grandfather having a large farm with crops galore and my Grandmother having a wonderful garden in the city. Honestly her garden reminded me of the Secret Garden. I would go in there with her next to her small pond and read books and talk about my life issues. I am deeply wanting this for my own children. A place outside for them to relax and meditate, an area for yoga would be amazing! Along with a garden that will nourish them and teach them about growth and life.
Today was a pretty horrible day, this wedding planning for my SIL is becoming a painful unwanted choir. If it wasn't for beginning my day with meditative yoga and ending it spending time with my kids and plants I am not sure how I would function.
I hope you all have found peace and love in your day today!
Much love Sparkers!
