Finding Nature in things

As part of the Dedicant’s Program for ADF, we are expected to connect to nature.  I’m an urban druid .. very much so!  I did inherit a rose bush with my current home and I’m going to try to keep that going, but a nature spot?

There is a park across the street, and that would be a possibility, but much of what I do is to get my urban-ness to work with my pagan-ness.  Which makes me think that maybe sitting in a manicured park isn’t the way to go.  Maybe instead I should sit outside in my patio and work with the dirt there … and just maybe grow something.

These photos are of my current patio “garden”.  There’s three live plants that I inherited with the condo, and I’d like to put up some more.  I’ve got a rose plant, and a couple others that I’m not sure what they are, but I’d like to encourage them to grow.  I’m going to do a bit of research on what plants will grow well in containers and see if I can’t get a few more shrubs, some herbs, and maybe even something like Kale or similar.
