After some thought, I realized the peace that comes with gardening plays a huge role in my love for it. I used to work in a cabinetry shop for my father and I hated it. All the loud saws and whatnot blaring away around me and while I do appreciate the fact that I had time to learn the basics of woodwork and construction, there is no way I would want to work like that everyday!
I like the peace and quiet of the garden and I even chose which landscaping company I would work for based on their "no noise" policy which eliminated the noise of line trimmers and other loud machinery. There is a peacefulness in nature, a simple serenity that goes unnoticed until you take time to dig in the dirt or relax and enjoy a walk through your garden.
Gardening helps me get away to a place of quiet allowing me forget my hectic daily life...and therefore I garden!'
I am simply a gardener who loves plants, nature, writing, photography, art and all things rustic, vintage and unique. Leave a comment or connect with me on Twitter! I'd love to hear from you!
