How To Plant The Seeds for a New Season!

just for fun Mar 22, 2018


Now is the time to “Spring” into action after a long chilly winter!

No matter your age, this change of season offers us the perfect opportunity to get outdoors for a bit and take advantage of spring. The birds are signing, flowers are waking up and everything is starting to be bright again!

A favorite activity to welcome spring, is gardening. Here’s the dirt about it. Gardening is incredibly beneficial not only physically, but mentally too! Pulling weeds and planting seeds helps to improve range of motion, strength and endurance. Additionally, gardening can aid in relaxation, which will subsequently reduce stress, giving a sense of accomplishment that flat-out makes us happy.

Looking for some ideas? How about planting Daisies or Sweet Pea flowers? These are the two types of flowers that signify April, according to “The Old Farmer's Almanac.”

The Daisy is also known as “day’s eye,“ because its petals close at night to cover the yellow center.

The Sweet Pea flower is associated with delicacy and blissfulness, on the other hand they are also used to say good-bye. For example, the "good-byes" we’re glad for; like saying so long to flies! These insects find the Sweet Pea’s fragrance offensive and will leave its surroundings in a hurry.

If gardening isn’t for you, we can still enjoy the blooming gardens and active wildlife around us. Why not start a daily walking routine? Walking is a simple, yet enlightening way we can enjoy spring at any age. While you are out, grab a buddy and do some bird watching, while the birds are all a-flutter returning home!
