My inner garden goddess was basking in joy this week with a trip to a large local indoor garden center with my mom! The joyful sensory experience, with warmth on my skin and the smell of earth and plants was just what I needed! I found so many inspiring ideas for flowering plants, succulents and houseplants for my kitchen goddess window.
The local parks are of course beautiful in the summertime, but in the early winter there is a kind of subtle magic. When we are not distracted by the stunning beauty of flowers, bright green leaves and vibrant energy-giving sunshine, it allows us to slow down and feel the essence of nature, to see and hear the soul of the plants and trees, to listen to the whispers in the breeze, to feel the calm in the flow of the water. Nature is truly in a peaceful slumber… the way I believe we are meant to be during this time of year.
