Quality Garden Time
Spending time in the garden gives you time to be with Mother Nature.
“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.”
– Robert Swan
It is scientifically proven that spending time outside with nature improves one’s mood and health. The flora provided naturally is so diverse and also provides inspiration. Gardens allow individuals to recreate this beauty in the vicinity of his or her home. It makes a living place more lively and colorful while helping the Earth regain its healthy state.
“The environment and the economy are really both two sides of the same coin. If we cannot sustain the environment, we cannot sustain ourselves.”
– Wangari Maathai
Garden Table Setting
Very cute ideas to use for a table setting that brightens the eating space. This particular idea is from Martha Stewart. It is not necessary to buy anything to build this. You could simply replace the materials with similar ones.
For this idea, also from Martha Stewart, you could use any clear glass or plastic cup of different sizes. The plants used must preferably be aquatic since they do not need soil to get their nutrients. As long as the plant gets sufficient sun, this idea can also be used as a table center .
The towering Sunflower is one of my favorite plants. So much life comes out of just one little seeds. It gives back in return its beautiful sunshine color and hundreds of seeds to replant and eat.
