Good morning, brilliant mankind. What a glorious day this is!
The Earth is warming and the early plants are starting to bud and flower. The garden, your own awesome, awe inspiring space is welcoming you. Enter the garden! It’s for you. Your own inspiring place that you created yourself.
This is rest. This is peace.
The great, good Earth gives us this abundance of plant and animal life. The great, good Earth nourishes and creates. It nourishes our soul.
The quiet needs of the human are fulfilled in the garden. The peace, the serenity, the beauty, the constant calm, the meditative stillness. The garden is for the beauty of the Earth. It’s beauty that we crave and beauty surrounds you.
The Earth sighs, thank you mankind for planting a tree, I breathe for another day.
Feel the warm breezes. Hear the nesting birds. Smell the fragrant flowers. See the beautiful array of colour. The garden touches your senses. It restores your soul.
Congratulate yourself on this fabulous place. You created it. It’s for you.
Now, bring in your favourite flower, or a scent that you just love. Place it close, where you can smell it, during the tranquility message. The arromatherapy will help with the effect of the message.
Go to www.calmsound.com, click on country garden and listen to the songs of your garden.
Now rejoice, mankind. All of that protected place, no matter how small your yard is, helps the Earth to rejuvenate itself. One more plant to protect the soil, one more tree to breathe. The fabulous Earth breathes from the plants, but also provides refuge and food for animal life as well.
Rejoice mankind, for your garden will bring animal life and might become a haven for nesting birds and butterflies. If you want to attract the wildlife, don’t spray your garden. Use mulch to reduce weeds around your plants instead. Sprays are extremely harmful to wildlife. If you’re interested in birds, a good site to go to is www.organicgardening.com. It has a section on attracting birds and preaches organic land use. You will be able to have a beautiful garden without the use of dangerous chemicals and pesticides.
If you enjoyed the tranquility message, the wonderful sound of the garden, you might also consider some botanical societies. You might also feel inspired enough to show your gardens. If you community competes in Communities in Bloom. visit www.communitiesinbloom.ca for more information about this exciting organization. If it doesn’t you might want to start.
Your call to action. Share this blog. We, the environmentalists need your support. The great, good Earth needs you as well. Please make a contribution in support of the planet. Donate to whichever environmental cause you like. You have more influence than you might realize. It’s not just one voice, one property.
Every piece of nurtured land is a contribution to the planet. Save us, brilliant mankind. You are the people. You have the power.
