Bonnie, from Northern California, responded to these seed-thoughts in May’s Earth-Love Newsletter:
How does the magic of being in the garden work? What does the Earth do that restores us to ourselves? If it’s a state of being, how do we carry it into our busy lives?
She provided photos of her garden with the piece below.

Being in my garden is like a meditation for me. It is time spent in such beauty and peace. I find myself talking to my beautiful flowers and plants and they respond in their language of just being. The daily chatter of my mind subsides and I even lose track of time, which is a huge gift from this amped up and plugged in life we swirl around in!
