How beautiful it is to do nothing,
and then to rest afterward.
Often in our busy lives we need to slow down and take cues from nature and rest. Fall is the season where things are slowing down in the garden and the plants take a rest.
All things need to rest.
Even the busy butterfly,
the gentle turtle,
the harried damselfly,
My idea of resting and tranquility is surrounding myself with nature. Listening to a babbling brook has a soothing and calming effect on my soul.
In my garden my place for reflection and rejuvenation is in the woodland garden. Here the plants are cooler and quieter than the bold, warm colors of those in the sun.
and the textures soothing.
It provides time for reflection and renewal.
Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths. ~Etty Hillesum
