A Garden Is Your Heaven On Earth

A Garden Is Your Heaven On Earth

In my garden there is a large place for sentiment. My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams. The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.
~Abram L. Urban

My garden is my little piece of Heaven on earth. It's my place to forget about the busy-ness of everyday life and also serves as my pick me up when I am feeling stuck. I plant the seeds and at the same time I plant my thoughts. I nurture them and then watch them come to life, my life. My flowers offer me peace, love, and beauty. Just taking time out to water them releases tension and anxiety that can build throughout my day. No matter how big or how small the space, there is peace, beauty, and growth for all who find that a garden
is their heaven on earth.

Take thy plastic spade,
It is thy pencil; take thy seeds, thy plants,
They are thy colours.
~William Mason, The English Garden, 1782

A garden offers one more than just beauty; it is a magnet that draws out your inner most thoughts. It is natural balancing tool that is free for all to use in life. For the mind who can't find a minutes rest; it quiets. It's an inspiration pathway to those who find themselves blocked. It opens a passageway to write and think quietly. Its beauty and aroma release mind tingling waves of inspiration. Just being in your garden inspirits the mind and soul.

He who cultivates a garden, and brings to perfection flowers and fruits cultivates and advances at the same time his own nature." ~Ezra Weston, 1845

Your garden is your get away from it all place. It is one more pathway to your soul. It brings tranquility and oneness with the self's spirituality. It gives back lovingly all that you put into it. Your garden is a natural mirror of what is going on in your world. It reflects who you are. Nurturing your garden nurtures you. Nature brings wisdom through gardens. Fairies are nature's angels forever presenting themselves to us by offering the beauty and tranquility of a garden.

The garden is a metaphor for life, and gardening is a symbol of the spiritual path.~ Larry Dossey, 1997

Plant your garden of inspiration; make it nature's window to your soul. Experience the tranquility of gardening by feeling the intimate connection it creates with you and mother earth. Add some color, aroma, and heartfelt peace in a little corner of your world. Beautify your life and all those around you. Plant your dreams and watch them grow.
