Plants and humans are more alike than different. They both need to be cared for and nourished to survive. They can be sensitive and yet forgiving. They are resilient. They love unconditionally. They listen without judgement and teach without words. Just like raising children, it is rewarding to watch plants grow. Plants provide an opportunity to nurture, and contribute to the complex beauty of nature. They can brighten and bring life to any space. And, just like humans, they can become your friends.
