We have a love affair with natural beauty and gardens are one of the ways that we get to express that. But they aren’t made to be looked at in pictures and renderings, or even admired from across the water. The best way is immersion. So bring a book, have a seat on a bench, and allow yourself to be a part of the landscape.
Leave your laptop at home. You don’t need to browse a website to research for your latest home improvement project or shop for the latest gadget on Amazon. Just allow yourself to get lost amongst the sights and smells of the garden without worrying about what you have to do later this afternoon or who will cook dinner tonight.
