Herb of the Week for 29th Dec
By Lynn Kirkland
New Life

As 2006 draws to a close, a time of reflection seems appropriate.
I find spending time in the garden gives me inspiration through the wonderful lessons from nature.
The lessons learnt from challenges faced throughout the year can be seen more clearly in the peaceful surroundings of a garden.
Our herb gardens are particularly peaceful and relaxing because of the way we work co creatively in harmony with nature.
A spiritual calmness exists in gardens where the will of the gardener has not been forced too much on the garden. Those who spend time in gardens like these feel the comfort and calm these places bring.
I believe your outlook on life shapes you into the person you are. As I walked around our beautiful and peaceful gardens one early morning this week I had the privilege of capturing one of nature’s special moments as a baby starling took a first look at the world around him or her. I thought he or she might be saying, “Wow, what a beautiful world out there” as he or she gazed out at the view on to the Living Magic garden in which the birdhouse stands. I marveled at the natural instincts that made the baby bird retreat inside when my presence was felt.
I was so grateful that I had the opportunity to capture this moment of part of the natural rhythm of life in the garden.
Gratitude is something we can all have if we take a moment to reflect on the blessings in our life this year.
I am so grateful for the wonderful people in my life and the many simple blessings that surround me each day.
2006 may have been a hard year with many challenges for some of you; however I hope you can be like our little starling and look out into the world ahead in 2007 with bright eyes and gratitude in your hearts.
P.S. I am grateful to all those who readers who read my column each week.
Wishing you all a happy and peaceful year ahead.
