I was surprised when touch turned out to be the most difficult sense for me to portray pictorially. I did my best, and I’ll love to see YOUR representations.
This garden plant got its common name from both the look and feel of its soft, fuzzy leaves. Although it’s far from one of the favorite plants in my garden, I do love to stroke those leaves.
In addition to the obvious pleasure in growing things to eat or admire, you can obtain other real benefits from getting your hands dirty, too. Research has shown that the microbes in soil provide therapeutic benefits.
Ahhhh….bare feet in fresh-mown grass. Even better early in the morning when it has dew on it.
Spring mosses are delightfully soft and yielding underfoot. Although my feet are way too tender to join their ranks, the barefoot hikers probably really love walking on forest moss!
I know you can’t tell from this picture, but there’s quite a breeze blowing through the trees. Feeling the spring breezes on my face, arms, and in my hair is wonderful!
It’s your turn – what’s reviving YOUR skin this spring?
