Ever since volunteering as a farmer for a year awhile back, gardening has become one of the beautiful additions to my life. Saving seeds, tending to plants, digging up soil, composting, watering, monitoring weeds and pests, moving stubborn rocks from future garden beds, hands in the earth tilling willing soil, lifting buckets of one things or another – it’s all a part of the adventure.
It takes a lot of work to tend to one depending on your rhythm of life and gardening goals but even if the garden isn’t yours to maintain, there’s something relaxing and refreshing about being in a beautiful garden. That can look like a row of containers with plants on the patio, buckets of growing trees in a backyard, seedlings springing up in a tray, a few jars of fresh herbs on a kitchen sill or lush land with greenery and blooming things. It doesn’t have to be elaborate to be enjoyable.
Today’s post is a short video of quiet morning moments in my tropical garden with birdsongs in the background. Hopefully you find it relaxing and inspiring.
