Life can be stressful, so coming home to a place that is relaxed and harmonious is a great gift. You can create a relaxing piece of the world for yourself by bringing in the beautiful elements nature has to offer.
I found two pots that had cracks, chips, and needed paint. I looked at them for a while trying to figure out what to do with them.
Sometimes I’ll paint an old pot to give it new life but there was something beautiful in the erosion of these pots that got me thinking.
Why do we always need shinny and new when there is beauty in worn and weathered? I found a piece of bark that fell off a tree in the wind storm that same day and together they were so pretty.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words so today I invite you to look at these images of nature, the textures, the upcycled pots, the shapes and sizes of the plants. How the colors mix together and form a harmonious grouping.
Then, maybe look around and see what you can pull together for your home or yard.
My Botany mentor, Dr. John Pipoly, said today “When you understand what you have, you know what you can do with it”, I totally agree!
Taking a few moments to see the patterns, structures, dimensions and magnitude of nature will give you an understanding of what to do with it, and how it can help, and heal you in life. Maybe you’ll fall in love with nature too.
