Gardening spans all over the world and without it there would not be any food available. Farming and cultivation of the land has been around for thousands of years. It is simple, men and women need food to survive. With that being said, plants are the most basic food for humans as well as other animals. Without plants there would not be food. Many types of plant organisms are used for food, decor, or medicinally.

The uses of plants do not even stop there. Of course they continue on, but that is not what I intended this post to be about.

With that being said, I love plants. No matter where they come from I love plants. Just the diversity and the bright colors that they bring to the world is enough to impress me. Plants are both a part of a healthy life and a happy life. Gardening brings that joy that permeates my soul. Both having a garden in the summertime and having houseplants inside helps me stay happy and healthy. Being able to take care of plants is such a rewarding experience that will stay for years to come. The ability to learn and grow from these precious experiences connects me deeper to nature. The connection to nature comes with time, patience, and effort. Gardening is my hobby that has allowed me to stay connected with nature.
