When we plant something, it is usually for beauty or for yield like in the case of flowers or crops. Tending a plant involves commitment and hard work but it is also therapeutic. It can give us a break from the stress of our everyday life.
The time you spent breaking up the earth and making the soil crumbly and soft to be able to nurture your beloved plants also provides you with a chance to think and reflect on your life. Waiting for it to grow and caring for it every day is an exercise in patience. The rewards outweigh the hard work when you get the fruits of your labors with beautiful flowers.
