Inspires By NatureTuesday, March 16, 2010
Whenever I am gardening or cooking, I would often think of new plants to grow, new ideas to write and even new recipes to try for that day... there's when I am most relaxed!
Sometimes in-between cooking, I would just go to the garden and do some watering or weeding.
I guess there is a connection between nature and us. I find that the green plants and colourful blooms give a calming and cheery effect on me.
So, I thought it would be good to bring some of those lovely blooms into the house? They have certainly made my kitchen look as warm and cheerful as my garden. Now as I cook I feel a lot more like cooking in the garden than in the the kitchen ;-)
Also, it is wonderful to see flowers blossoming right infront of my eyes. Just like these Gomphrenas... do you notice those inconspicuous flowers in-between the bracts? Those micro beauties complete the globose flowerheads and made the blooom more delightful.
For me, ideas grow in stages, starting from one point and developing from there just like how a flower blossoms.
I am thankful that God blesses us with so many wonderful things in life that inspire us to become better and better... ;-)
