Get Growing: Plants expand our awareness with a calm presence

Plants reach and expand us in different ways:

Calm presence:

Spending time with plants is one of my favorite things.  Plants make sense.  They are so easy to please

with their simple requirements, and when they aren’t happy, they let us know in a clear manner.  They

look droopy when thirsty or small when overcrowded and so on.  It is nice to be with that simplicity,

that calm openness, and pulled from our over-thinking minds into a easy flow of the plant world.

Lavender is one my favorites among plants, as it abundantly radiates calm joy. Photo thanks to Tanaka Juuyoh..
