As a guy who grew up in the country, I have always had a close tie and a deep love for nature. I have fond memories of long bike rides on dirt roads, sunny days running through fields of corn, the smells of fresh cut grass blowing in the wind all of it thanks to the beauty that is nature and of course Plants.
Often when we come to the city we leave behind a lot of the nature we grew up with, like I did when I came to Toronto years ago, and even though I love this city having some plant life happening in your own life for me is key, not only for the air we breath but also for the love and feel of nature around you.
I don’t think I’ve ever though of plants so much after watching the video above but a lot of the points touched on really do ring true.
Over my life I have had more “Manly” plants and less of anything that ever had flowers, it may also show that I am able to “Nest” and take care of something that has life, even though I might never admit to that, but most of all plants are so beautiful much like people they have their own characteristics and size and shape and often the beauty can be found in the most perfect and also the most flawed.
So while a boquet of flowers might be for the girls, for you guys out there don’t be afraid to surround yourself with plants, hey it might even help your game!
