Thursday, May 3rd: Spring … warm weather … flowers and GARDENS! Today is GARDEN MEDITATION DAY. Use this day to “Let go of your concerns and center your full attention on the garden for even a few minutes today. Focusing on weeding, tilling the soil or cleaning up the garden is a relaxing way to direct your concentration to just one thing.” Every day I can get in the garden is a good day. Working in the garden is relaxing and rewarding. But some days, just sitting in a green peaceful space is even better!
Gardenlady.com lists a different way to celebrate gardens every day during May. See all the days here: http://www.gardenlady.com/may_garden_days.html
