The inevitabilities of life are never more evident than in a compost pile. Throw in a few decaying leaves, your coffee grounds, a little manure and some plant clippings and voila! They are slowly transformed into something that fosters new growth.
Today, why not start an emotional compost pile too? Throw in your discarded hopes and dreams, a little life experience and slowly you’ll grow to discover a rebirth… a new outlook.
A garden is as much a state of mind as an actual place. It exists because you discover a place of beauty that feels apart from the outer edges of the frantic world. At the center of the garden is a personal refuge and a source of pleasant thoughts. So, along with your hoes and rakes and shovels remember: The most essential piece of garden equipment is a hammock.
