Papa’s World – eating healthy is not the only thing – flowers

We walk – we eat healthy – but the mental part is also important !

Our roses out front

A healthy body also has to have a healthy mind – at least mine does !

So – when we moved into our house thirteen years ago –

I started digging up – replanting – moving – shrubs – putting in trees

( 3 Crepe Myrtles ) and numerous rose bushes – flowers that came back year after year.

Crepe Myrtle out front

I had to dig these trees on my hands and knees – being so many rocks ! With that being said – when they bloom a bright ruby red – I just love them – and it all was worth it !

Ninety five per cent comes back

Flowers and color do a lot for my mind and peaceful thoughts.

But – as you get older – weeding kills your back – at least mine !

So – this year – I bought the mulch from the boy scouts – and actually paid them to spread it around – 25 bags !

It was well worth it and half the cost of anyone else.

Flowers and flags

These roses will bloom off and on until Fall – most everything in the beds comes up each year.

Walking home – when coming in sight of the house- gives me a great calming thought – seems like any stress just goes away –

and that is for my mental being.

Front steps and door

Sherry always plants the planters around the house – in back -the patio and the front porch.

So – when people visit – the visual of flowers – the welcome mat – sitting on the front porch or in the enclosed patio – brings calm – that is why we do it .

The back patio and Tower Gardens

Each year – in the back – we plant flowers and the Tower Gardens –

which provide our vegetables daily.

In front of these are the other two Crepe Myrtles that I hand planted – all the trees and bushes here I also planted.

Yesterday’s harvest from our strawberry patch

We also grow our own strawberry’s – enough to provide us each morning for breakfast while they last.

Living a healthy lifestyle – to reduce stress – we plant – we grow and produce vibrant colors all Spring – Summer and Fall.

We actually grow even in Winter inside our garage.

For a stress relief – try flowers – smell them – watch them grow –

it can do wonders for your mental health.

I hope this blog helps you today – #livinglifetotheplus http://www.sf.juiceplus.com
