Find a Garden

To observe the seasons in all their transformative glory, you don’t need to have your own garden, you can simply adopt one!  Beautiful gardens can be found in parks everywhere.  Public parks are wonderful places to enjoy at all times of the year.

“Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature, it will never fail you.”  

Frank Lloyd Wright

Wherever you go, visit a park.  The essence of where you are can be found in the specific plants, trees and flowers that are indigenous to different places.  Taking note of them gives you insight into everything about that particular location and can create a beautifully enhanced memory of where you’ve been.

This is an activity that’s perfectly lovely when shared with someone you love.  A friend.  I find it particularly wonderful too, even when I’m alone.  It’s easier to take note of the environment when you’re not distracted by engaging with another person.  I love taking long walks on my own.  Finding a garden is an extraordinary discovery.  No matter where you go, nature offers such delights.  The fragrance of certain flowers, how the light alters the colors of leaves, the way a breeze brings a landscape to life…all of the beauty of nature is on display and you didn’t have to do anything, to create it yourself!  Visit a park and discover your own special garden, it’s a perfect way to spend an afternoon with A Table For One.
