Gardening Has It's Perks

Gardening is a rewarding and fulfilling hobby that offers a plethora of physical, mental, and emotional benefits. As we toil in the soil and nurture our plants, we also nurture our well-being in numerous ways.
One of the most obvious benefits of gardening is the physical exercise it provides. Whether digging, planting, weeding, or watering, gardening requires a fair amount of physical exertion, which can help improve strength, flexibility, and overall fitness. Additionally, spending time outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine can boost vitamin D levels and improve mood.

Gardening is also a great way to reduce stress and promote relaxation. The repetitive tasks of gardening, such as pruning and watering, can help calm the mind and provide a sense of peace and tranquility. Working with plants and getting your hands dirty has been shown to lower cortisol levels and improve mood, making it a great form of therapy for those dealing with anxiety or depression.

Overall, gardening is a wonderful hobby that offers a multitude of benefits for both body and mind. Whether you have a green thumb or are just starting out, there is something to be gained from spending time in the garden. So, grab your gloves, pick up a shovel, and start reaping the many rewards that gardening has to offer.

 

Spring Blooms:A Mother's Love Part 1 & 2

Happy Mother's Day

In every bloom that paints the earth,
A mother’s love gives spring its worth.
Her gentle touch, a soft embrace,
Like petals dancing with such grace.
She nurtures life with tender care,
A bond so pure, beyond compare.
In every bud and leaf that wakes,
Her love in nature, forever makes.

She is the sun that warms the day,
And in her arms, we find our way.
Like flowers that bloom in sweet delight,
A mother’s love, forever bright.

So let us cherish, honor, and sing,
Of the season where mothers bring,
A warmth and beauty, so divine,
In springtime’s love, forever shine.

in the gentle arms of spring we’re held,
A symphony of colors, stories to be untold.
Blossoms blooming, fields of green,
A nurturing touch, a sight unseen.

Mother nature whispers secrets to the earth,
Her love like a warm embrace, a rebirth.
She paints the world with shades of joy,
Her essence pure, no one could destroy.

In the dance of petals and the song of birds,
We find solace in her gentle words.
Her strength, her grace, a guiding light,
In her love, we find our might.

So let us honor the mothers of the land,
For they hold the universe in their hand.
In springtime’s bloom and nature’s art,
We see the reflection of a mother’s heart.

Red Nose Day: What It's Really About

Red Nose Day

Red Nose Day is a campaign that aims to raise money and awareness for children living in poverty around the world. This annual fundraising event, organized by Comic Relief, takes place on the last Friday of March each year. Thousands of people come together to support this cause by wearing red noses, hosting fundraising events, and donating money to make a difference in the lives of those in need.
The concept of Red Nose Day was inspired by the popular British charity event, Sport Relief, which uses sport to raise money for those in need. In 1985, Comic Relief was founded by comedians Lenny Henry and Richard Curtis with the goal of using humor to raise money for charity. Since then, Red Nose Day has become a global phenomenon, raising over $1 billion to date.

The main focus of Red Nose Day is to tackle the root causes of poverty that affect children and their families. This includes providing access to education, healthcare, and basic necessities such as food and clean water. By raising awareness and funds through a combination of entertainment and community events, Red Nose Day has made a significant impact in improving the lives of children in need.

Overall, Red Nose Day is a fun and impactful way to raise money and awareness for children in need. By coming together as a global community, we can make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate and create a brighter future for all. So put on your red nose, join the campaign, and help make a difference this Red Nose Day.

 

Have A Laugh

One sunny day in Florida, a group of senior citizens decided to go on a field trip to the beach. As they were lounging in their beach chairs, soaking up the sun, one of the seniors named Ethel stood up and began practicing her yoga poses.

As she gracefully moved from downward dog to warrior pose, the other seniors couldn’t help but giggle at her enthusiasm. Ethel, undeterred by the laughter, continued to strike a series of impressive poses, much to the amazement of her fellow beachgoers.

Suddenly, a passing seagull swooped down and snatched Ethel’s hat right off her head. The seniors erupted into fits of laughter as Ethel chased after the mischievous bird, waving her arms and shouting, “Come back here, you feathered thief!”

After a few minutes of frantic pursuit, Ethel finally managed to retrieve her hat, tucking it securely back onto her head with a triumphant smile. The other seniors applauded her heroic efforts, marveling at her tenacity and quick reflexes.

As they packed up their belongings to head back to the retirement home, Ethel turned to her friends and said with a twinkle in her eye, “Well, at least I got in a good workout today. Who knew yoga could come in handy for seagull wrangling?”

And with that, the seniors shared a good laugh and continued on their journey home, already looking forward to their next adventure in sunny Florida.

Arches

Double O Arch

The second largest arch within the Devils Garden area. As the name implies, there are two arches here, one large, with a
span of 71 feet, stacked atop a much smaller arch with a 21-foot span. It was formed by downward water erosion from atop the sandstone, rather than from side-to-side water erosion.
