Healthy Growing Season

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Love all the chatter on the message boards about planting, pruning, and enjoying the growth (flowers, shade, and fruits). They are all such a healing activities.

I received 2 new plants as Mother's Day gifts. One is doing beautifully on my dining room table and I enjoy seeing it every time I walk by. The other was a miniature group of miniature roses in a small pot and it completely died in 2 days. My suspicion is that it was somehow shocked by in handling either by the grower (shoving them into a pretty pot), the store (lack of water), or maybe it sat in a hot truck/car. Both plants were reminders to me of the fragile state of our lives. We take care of ourselves and we thrive. Everyone, including ourselves, can easily see the healthy state we exude. Yet when we deny our bodies healthy food, rest, exercise, and good relationships or we expose ourselves to (hot) stress, the bad effects are quickly seen by all.

I'm choosing to make my body healthy today.

    Very well put. I too, see the similarities of plant care and ourselves.

What happens when we don't water our plants? Us?

How about not enough?

When shrubs grow too large, for the health of it, it needs to be pruned. Can't I say the same about myself?

The list goes on.

Keep up the good work, on your dining room table plant and try another rose.:)

As for yourself, you know what is best for you and it looks like you are taking the right steps to stay healthy. emoticon
