Your Personality The Greens of Growth
Many gardeners are the nurturing type: just like Mother Nature. People
say they have “green thumbs” because they can make anything grow. Is
your personality the growth type? Are you the kind of person who wants
to see others grow and develop? If so, you probably love to be around
children and, though you are exhausted at the end of the day, you feel
like it is all worth it if you have helped other people. So is there
green in your garden?
It seems to be a silly question: is there green in the garden? Most
people think that green automatically appears in the garden. Leaves
and stems are almost always green. But green can also be used as an
accent color itself, though it’s often overlooked – just like the nurturing
individual – a teacher, a preacher, a farmer. These nurturers are vital
to the world, but often go overlooked.
Why does the color of a garden even matter? Many psychologists have
studied the effects of colors on the human psyche for years. Colors
both reflect our current emotions and elicit certain emotions from us.
In other words, if you feel happy, you may wear your yellow shirt to
work. Yellow is a happy color. If you look on the walls in the doctor’s
office, they are most likely blue or some other calming color. Green
is a color of growth and nurturing. Used in the garden, can give those
Many people focus on the brightly colored flowers – the reds, yellows,
and oranges, but they overlook what a simple green can do for the garden.
The next time you go to the greenhouse to pick out flowers for your
garden, take a moment and consider this. It’s important because the
garden – and your whole house – should reflect your personality. If
you are the nurturer, let the green come out and show the neighborhood
that this is your sanctuary.
When it comes to greenery, use it liberally in the garden. It’s difficult
to have too much green. Using green in the garden has a two-fold effect.
First, by filling the garden with a green backdrop, the other colors
will stand out more vibrantly. If you set off a firework in the middle
of the day, it’s rather unimpressive. But if you place it on a dark
backdrop, it will light up the sky. Green in the garden helps to accomplish
this. Green also has a second effect. It gives the appearance of a lush,
healthy garden. It’s nice to see the different flowers in a garden,
but if you fill in the areas between them with some greenery it makes
the entire landscape seem to jump to life.
So when it comes to your garden, does your loving and nurturing side
come to the front? Can your neighbors see the effect of your green thumb?
With the careful placement of some green plants, you can bring your
garden to life and make it an extension of yourself. After all, you
spend a great deal of time, effort, and money in the garden. Shouldn’t
it reflect part of you?
