simple pleasure of the week: gardening

As the days become warmer all I want to do is be outside and surrounded by nature. I have found myself time and again daydreaming about how I want my garden to look, what to plant, the colors I want to incorporate, and the smells I want to be enveloped by. These are some of my favorite things to think about. Gardening brings a sense of calm into my world and a fun focus for the weekends. It helps me to unplug from technology and be mindful as to what this earth can offer without the need of the newest gadget. Planning out my garden, researching about the best plants for our climate, getting my hands dirty, watering the flowers, and watching everything grow is a simple pleasure of mine.
