“The view from your bedroom should include something that blooms every spring”, writes Michelle Slatalla and her team in their Gardenista Manifesto.
Having a garden means investing in your future. The more I know about nature and plant behaviour, the more conscious I am about everything that grows near me. Especially trees and their value. How slowly they mature and how long they last.
I have the prettiest bedroom view because someone planted our backyard with clusters of lilac trees several decades ago.
I have made myself a promise to plant at least one tree every year to leave cleaner air and something pretty to look at for those who come after me.
