Getting outside is good for the soul. So is a beautiful scene. It does something that lifts it, makes it feel happy and inspired. Something that we could all use a little more of in our regular day to day routine.

You might have a favorite place you like to visit for that very reason, like a historical plantation or a park, but what about your home? Your home is the perfect place to re-create a place you love or just a place that’s in your head. Gardening is a beautiful way to get creative outside. It will bring you even more joy because you put in all that time and hard work. You can take some time to kick back and enjoy the fruits of your labor- maybe even literally so if that’s what you’re growing.
