If you take a moment to picture the cloudless blue sky or the crisp,
ebbing ocean, can you feel the tranquility? Can you feel the warmth
radiating in the air and the crisp welcoming spray of the ocean water?
Imagine plunging your feet into that refreshing water as you turn your
face upward to see the peaceful sky. Why is that when people are feeling
sad, they say they are feeling blue? Blue isn’t the color of sadness
– is the peace and tranquility of a lazy summer day. It’s the color
of water and sky. Is it – or should it be – the color of your garden?
The switch between garden and psychology is not as drastic as many people
believe. In fact, psychologists have studied the effects of colors on
the human psyche for years. Colors both reflect and cause us to feel
certain emotions. A certain colored shirt may be an indication that
you are feeling a certain way. Or conversely, the color of a wall may
make you feel more anxious or more free.
So the next time you go to the greenhouse and pick out flowers for your
garden, take a moment and consider the colors that you are picking.
Why is this important? Your house – inside and out - reflects your personality.
If want to show that you are filled with peaceful and tranquil harmony,
then choose some blue flowers for your garden. They’ll be there as a
reminder to be at peace with yourself, but to enjoy company with a neighbor.
Experts who have spent time studying human behavior understand that
these small indicators, such as color, can tell a great deal about person’s
personality. In some cases these subtleties can actually indicate as
much as – if not more – an in-depth conversation would. One of these
indicators is the person’s color palate – what they wear, how they color
their houses, even their choices of colors in their gardens.
When it comes to blue flowers – and purple ones too – there are not
as great of a number of other options as there are with other color
flowers. However, the choice is far from limited. One of the most beautiful
of the blue and purple flowers is the hepatica. With its deep blue petals
holding a gorgeous sunburst pattern from the center, the hepatica is
sure to catch attention. However, it does not so it in a braggadocios
fashion. The hepatica, rather, offers more of a subtle call – like the
spring breeze or the quiet coo of a mourning dove.
So when it comes to your garden, can you look at it and feel the peace
and tranquility that you feel inside? Do your neighbors see peace and
harmony, or chaos and disarray? With just a few simple touches, a garden
can be all that you want it to be. You’ve put so much effort of yourself
into it; you should make sure that your garden reflects who and what
you are. If you are a “blue” person, then buy some blue flowers to show
your inner peace and harmony.
