Simple Joys of Home Gardening

Aug 31, 2012

Nothing adorns your yard's landscaping or complements your home's interior decors like flowers and plants. The pleasures of home gardening provide an excellent way to relieve stress and get in tune with yourself or nature during both the cultivation process and when the flowers are in full bloom. After a long and tiring day, tending to garden plants can bring the gardener to a serene level of thoughtfulness and calm. For fun or function, gardening is simply a superior undertaking.

A home garden of herbs nurtured from seed can add delicious life to cuisine and kitchen decor for the beginner. It is a great way to get in the habit of tending to greenery and learning the life cycle. Around the house, plants as decorations spruce up with color and energy. The Chlorophytum Comosum, commonly called the "Spider" plant, is one of the easiest plants to succeed with. Their sprawling leaves reaching out around the house add warmth and coziness. An aloe plant is a lovely plant to look at and a minor medical aid; try showing it to any child prone to reach for cartoon band-aids, and they can learn about natural healing and plant mechanics when the clipped plant regrows. The wonder of watching and cultivating will not be lost on anyone.

For the brave and boundless gardener, Orchids can be the most rewarding. Since one of the significant keys to achievements in home gardening is self-belief, another valuable repercussion of this most enjoyable activity is the sheer joy of self-accomplishment. Other garden plants not so stubborn to bring to bloom include Cosmos and Zinnia. The Cosmos can thrive in even the poorest of soil conditions and invite stunning butterflies to your garden. At the same time, Zinnia is a joy to nurture in a rainbow of colors and make beautiful arrangements in the home or as gift bouquets.

Gardening is a beautiful way to enjoy life, learn about it, and seek shelter from the stress of everyday living. The satisfaction garnered from nurturing a seed to fruition is unmatched by any other hobby, and this simple, inexpensive craft yields brilliant blooms for the yard or home. Learning how to succeed at gardening is half the fun, and once you've mastered it, the simple joy is a medicinal source of pleasure and inspiration.
