To celebrate Earth Day perhaps you would like to spend a few moments using your senses to notice and appreciate the wonders of mother nature.

It could be anything from digging your fingers in the earth, listening to the birds singing, walking barefoot on the grass, running your fingers through some herb plants and enjoying the scent, noticing the exquisite beauty of any flowers you see or the vivid green of the new leaves unfurling now.

How about taking some time to enjoy some fresh fruits or vegetables and savouring the taste and texture.

Have a go at sowing some herb, vegetable or flower seeds – there’s a fabulous detailed podcast all about greenhouses and seed sowing over at the Alternative Kitchen Garden (episode 86).

How about starting a herb patch – had to get that in of course! My e-book to help you do just that is coming out really soon…..

If you want some simple ways to save 10 euros and help the earth too, take a look at this video for some ideas:  http://tinyurl.com/cxoqne.

Hope you have a wonderfully sensual day!

Have you guessed what the herb in the second photo is yet?

Good guess, but no it isn’t. Anyone else want to try?
