To understand the relationship between plants and human delight one need only visit a garden and observe how people change in the presence of plants. Or ask yourself how it is a bouquet of flowers brings joy to so many. Or ponder the transformative nature of Spring and how new growth and blossoms coax us out of doors to remember the living movements of the earth. Plants show us the wonder and mystery of life. They connect us to timeless patterns of growth and regeneration and bring us delight in the beauty and unexpected pleasures of their rebirth and transformation.
