Nothing beats the smell and beauty of freshly cut flowers, especially when they came from your own garden.
Not long ago people dedicated a portion of their lawn for this purpose. Recently this trend has been making a come back and rightly so; working in a garden relieves stress, invigorates the mind, and best of all that sweet fragrance has been shown to increase the release of chemicals in the brain associated with feeling happy.
All in all having a flower garden,as ex-con Martha Stewart would say, “is a good thing”.
