Green Hearts…and Seeing Love


Being that today is Earth Day, I thought I’d share a little something with you that’s green beautiful.

Last Fall, as the cold was creeping in, I went for a meditation session held at nearby Wellesley College.  The meditation took place in the greenhouse, where it was bright and warm, calm yet alive.  The moment I entered this lushness I felt comforted and peaceful…which happened to be the perfect prelude to meditation.

After the meditation session I had a chance to stroll around the greenhouse.  As I walked around I noticed that my head was clear (thanks to the meditation) and that my senses were very much alive.  I could smell the dirt, I could hear the soothing trickling of a nearby fountain, and best of all I saw hearts…lots and lots of green hearts…

…such as this plump one…

…as well as this wrinkly-looking one.

Here’s one that’s practically flawless, and the hearts trailing below it were just as perfect.

Then I noticed in a nearby pot that there were some sweet baby leaves, also in heart shapes.  The soft, pinky-blush color made me think of love.  And of course the heart shapes in general made me think of love…love in abundance to be exact.

As we move further and further into the growing season, may you see that there are signs of love  everywhere.  Let’s stop to smell the roses…or in this case, see the leaves…see the love.

  2. I am always spotting green stars and hearts! This makes me smile-
    If you plant Morning Glories you will have many green hearts and rabbits will magically find you! ;D

    How wonderful is it to be surrounded by these little treasures and actually notice them. So often we wisk through life without seeing the symbols of love around us.
