This past weekend I prepared some of the plants to come inside, repotted, de-bugged, and usually I have some of my best ideas while digging in the dirt, this time it felt like a chore. However, I was reminded of the calming effect that my little oasis has had on the family.
We’re lucky enough to have a small patio and green space that combined with a few potted plants and flowers, is transformed into a lovely garden. One of my social experiments this summer was to lead my man out the door when he was stressed and sit in this space. Very effective, a calming effect takes over.
Simple low maintenance plants were chosen, because…hey, I’m busy. You don’t need a large space to create a secret garden.
