I have often heard it said that we are closest to God in the garden.
It is a different connection in the garden than when we experience God out in the wilds of nature. The garden allows us to intimately participate in, and become co-creators, with the cycles of life. Though we may gaze in awe at a meadow on fire with red and orange wildflowers, our spiritual and emotional connections are more deeply sustained when we are the creators of some natural beauty. When we create our own sacred garden, we create a sanctuary in which to nourish our souls connection to nature. I have a passion for the flower garden for flowers possess a certain power. The flower garden inspires us to go beyond the ordinary, to rise above the mundane and embrace the invisible laws of spirit that gift us with beauty.
