Gratitude Gardens

Hello Gardeners! We talk so much about positives and negatives - flowers are good, weeds are bad - but it is so important to remember that it's natural for both to exist. Life is a balancing act of good things, difficult things, happy times, and times of distress. Our hope is that we can provide you the tools to manage the hard stuff and celebrate & cherish the good!



#GardenerShanna likes to remind of something #FredRogers used to say,


"look for the helpers".


In times of weeds and worries, looks for the flowers. When we take a minute to think about the friends we have supporting us, the people and pets who show us love, the strengths we see in ourselves, the accomplishments we've made, and all of the luck and good fortune we've experienced in our lives, that alone can make us take pause to appreciate the good and choose joy.


If you need a little help looking for the helpers, try making a gratitude garden with our origami tulip craft! Watch the gifs below to make your tulips:



Then, write your flowers on your tulips:



And make your #GratitudeGarden!


#GardenerBrendan chose to hang his gratitude garden on the refrigerator, but any high traffic area will do!

Next time you are in a moment of worry, take a look at your gratitude garden and focus on the good!


We would love to see YOUR gratitude gardens - send pictures to flowers@youareagardener.com or tag us @youareagardener. Remember you can always send us your weeds too! #GardenerAnna & #GardenerAidan would be happy to help you out. Be sure to keep up with Season 2 of #HelloGardeners. We just launched our 2nd episode of the second season!!


And as always, #PullYourWeeds!
