I’ve taken up indoor gardening. Reenforcing my bond with Mother Nature.
Repotting myself too, in a sense, but that’s for another day. Rootbound and now unwinding, relaxing, stretching my essence.
I’ve taken up indoor gardening. It’s become the best part of my mornings. A soft dance. A loving ‘good’ leaving my lips, the “morning” a finished whispered hum as I sway to their leaves. Over 30 now. A collection, but more like a family.
Some rescued. Starved and now lush. All the water and sun their roots desire. A responsibility, but also an ego boost. When their colors and shapes are praised, my soul shines. Their photosynthesis a blessing.
Now caressing them. Feeling their veins. Each uniquely textured. Some smooth, others more dramatic.
I’ve taken up indoor gardening. They keep me company as I enjoy my own company. My solitude a blessing, my plants a wanted company. They are always welcomed in my space. Enriching my air. My soul. My Place.
I’ve taken up indoor gardening and its centered me. Allowing me to slow down and be in each of their moments, gently witnessing. All of this teaching me how to be more present in my own, understanding the quickness of it all.
I’ve taken up indoor gardening, and I’m obsessed with watching my plants grow. I’ll make sure to keep you posted as the collection flourishes into a jungle. I hope you are all having a great day. I’ll be spending mine with my plants ❤
