I interrupt your regular broadcasting to take a walk through the last vestiges of colour in my autumn garden. I started off just puttering around the garden then ended up spending all of Saturday working in the garden. Totally unplanned but there was something very satisfying about digging and pulling out weeds, getting sweaty and smelly finishing it off with a nice hot bath at the end of the day. The time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life rejuvenates me. It is so rewarding to spend time in nature. There’s nothing quite like getting so close to the earth that I can smell the fresh soil, notice the small insects and textures of the organic particles that provide plants with nutrients to grow. Its mind blowing when you actually consider how a seed turns into a plant, that in turn provides us with beautiful flowers and delicious nourishment.
While gardening also produces beautiful flowers, I get a such great sense of satisfaction when I grow my own vegetables. Though this year has not been good harvest wise (apart from onions and garlic) I do not measure our success by the bounty it provides but by the peace of mind and connection to earth that can be achieved by spending just a few hours gardening.
Do you like gardening too?
Thanks for stopping by!
Peace and love,
