Colorful Tulips welcome the spring. Southern Magnolias treat us to their lemon-scented flowers all summer. Quaking Aspens dazzle in the fall. Birds, bees, dragonflies and hummingbirds zip and buzz about the landscape, adding cheerful energy and movement. Nature's wonders captivate us throughout the calendar year, using colors, patterns, textures, smells and sounds to stimulate all five senses.
We have an instinctive connection to Nature and her fascinating creatures. We respond to the earthy smell of fresh soil and the crunch of fallen leaves. Caring for plants (and even seeing them through a window) speeds physical healing and recovery from mental anguish. Flowers commemorate life, death and every milestone along the way - their delicate grace touching the soul. Awe and wonder - Nature pulls us in and captivates us!
The Natural world is full of magic and healing. Spending time in this environment promotes calming, healing and deeper thinking. Wonder and playfulness return to mind, relieving stress of its duties for a while. A clear, playful and happy mind? Yes please!
