A walk in the garden or park can help us forget our troubles; a bouquet of flowers puts a smile on our face. Quite simply, flowers make us happy. Research proves nature can improve our emotional and physical health.
When planning your garden, remember that your color choices can influence your mood and even impact your health. The invisible vibrations of color produce different emotional responses in us – some are stimulating, others relaxing. Here’s a list of our typical reactions to common hues. You can decide what’s best for you, but color therapists suggest that it’s important to include a balance of colors in the garden; if you focus on one particular color, include a smaller amount of its complement as well.
