The Golden Age of Gardens

As COVID-19 seems to be overstaying its welcome, well into the summer now, people are turning to the "great outdoors" for entertainment. Enough Netflix and Hulu--time for something productive. Although options may be limited for those in the city or suburbia, it seems gardens work for just about anyone who can afford the space in their yard... or even in their sunlit apartment. 

This happens to come at a time when champions of sustainability and environmentalists preach for sourcing food sustainably amidst the alleged climate crisis. Community gardens and personal gardens have been booming in the past decade, becoming a mainstream lifestyle within the more progressive population. 

Mix that in with a seemingly perpetual quarantine, and just about everyone and their mothers will be planting beans and tomatoes. So, as everyone begins setting up their garden, how do you decorate a garden? How do you make it a peaceful place, or rather, how do you make the gardening, an already therapeutic task, and take it a step further to zen? How do you make a garden better?

A shepherd hook or two is a good place to start.

Do you have some hungry, friendly birds who need a meal? Hang a feeder. The list goes on and on.
