While looking in awe at the beauty of nature, we cannot but admit the perfection of the universe. The diversity of shapes, textures and colors make us feel a sense of a magical wonder. It's right in front of our eyes and we cannot deny its beauty. IT'S A CLEAR FACT!
When it comes to all "other" facts, they can be dismissed by preconceived notions, aimed at distorting a series of issues, according to the intention in which a particular ideology wants to affect a segment of the society who thrives in not demanding accountability or proof. As Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius (121Ad-180Ad) already had the vision to state it:
Studies have shown that being surrounded by or wiewing the beauty of nature, is one of the best medicines for mental and physical health. While the distortion of facts, can impact with negativity in a variety of cultural and social issues, not only to a single individual, but entire communities, a country, and ramifications throughout the world.

Life is a string of building blocks,as building a home from the ground up. A garden is an example on how the universe works. Nothing is possible without the interactivities and co-dependencies among the species.
The best way to begin a garden is by selecting a group of perenials, which will provide a solid foundation. You can count on them to delight you year after year, reproducing as much as you want them to and, having enough to share with others. They require minimal work and you can add annuals and experiment with them as you discover along how magical your green-thumb can be.
Birds, bees and butterflies love them and you will become addicted paying attention to them frolicking around your world, filled with colors, personality and music. There will be always plenty of weeds. Some are great for your health. Plus, the special habitants of your community depend on them for survival. For example, Dandelion is a powerful one. Its yellow flowers covering the grounds in early spring are like a welcoming big smile from nature and a sign of renewal. Anyone with a garden should avoid chemicals. They are harmfull to all. A reminder of what has been happening with bees, who are indispensable in our food chain.
