It's my 100th post. My little garden blog makes it to the first milestone. I really enjoy writing, gardening, photography and designing, so blogging is in my blood. This is where I put my heart and soul (and trowel!) lol
If you read my recent post on the LEFT SIDE of the BRAIN and GARDENING, you might wonder what's left for the RIGHT BRAIN to do!
THE ANSWER: ALL THE FUN STUFF!
1) Right brain gardening includes the enjoyment of color, texture, rhythm, and form in plants.
2) Right brain gardening includes the enjoyment of flowers, insects, and animals that visit your garden. Watching the flowers visited by butterflies lights up a ton of circuits in a right brain gardener's brain.
3) Designing the garden, creating new plant combinations, moving plants around to get just the right look is all right brain gardening.
4) Arranging garden art on the fence, matching garden art with plants, designing and following a theme, and designing a garden around a type or method of gardening would all be fun for a right brain gardener.
5) Painting your fence in unusual styles or using unusual materials as artistic expressions would be right brain gardening.
6) Listening to music, writing garden music, or dancing* around in your garden would also be included.
(* dancing, but not falling down or tripping over garden tools...that would be included in another type of gardening :0) lol)
7) Synthesis of ideas, seeing patterns, considering the benefits on a larger scale, global issues, concern for the whole environment, and empathy for all the living things in your area are right brain styles of gardening.
Whew! So have I listed enough for the right side? How about one more: Garden blogging!!! Designing your garden blog, choosing the colors, the styles, the fonts, the pictures and making it all work as a whole is my favorite part of right brain gardening....except for one thing better.....finding garden blog friends like you who read and visit my blog. Thanks and Happy Gardening from David at Tropical Texana.
