Gardeners see plants in nurseries like little kids see puppies in the windows of pet shops. What makes the trip to the nursery so exciting is that there is really no other place where a gardener can find so many plants in one place that are not in the ground, but rather, are in a transient space, waiting for green thumbed hands to take them home.
There have been studies suggesting that plants in and around the home actually help reduce the daily stress we feel from normal 21st century living. Certainly the relationships we have with plants -- especially plants we keep and cultivate -- are mysterious. Some studies even suggest that merely the presence of green plants can actually contribute to our good health, both in body and mind. If such studies are true, what better gift than the gift of living green?
This year a customer of ours received a living plant as a holiday gift from his neighbor. "It was such a great gift," he said, "because it's alive and green and lasting long after all the other gifts were used up or put away." It's true, plants as gifts in winter remind us that spring will soon emerge from the whites and grays of a cold, cold winter. Plants as gifts bring warmth early.
Nature becomes aesthetic through human touch and interaction. We can humanize our garden world in different ways: with pots, planters, stones and pavers, sculptures and fountains. With objects that we love, that we feel are beautiful, we give the wildness of garden space our own unique human presence. Objects and ornaments are the real artifacts of our lives, warm reminders of who we are in relation to the living space of our home, but also to our friends and loved ones.
