If you are a fan of the sitcom ‘The Office’, you may appreciate this recent news clip about cubicles getting even smaller in today’s workplace. Being a half-full rather than a half-empty kind of gal, this trend presents just one more reason to find solace in the garden.

Whether you have a tiny balcony, a kitchen window or a parcel of land waiting to be dug and sown, it’s time to make a growing space of your own. Never ventured into dirt? Think back to when you were a kid playing in the sandbox or jumping in those piles of raked leaves. There was something invigorating about that quiet outdoor space you embraced as an inquisitive youngster.

Here’s a suggestion for those being shifted into smaller cubby holes. Create your own garden space. You can always kick up your feet and watch re-runs of ‘The Office’ or you can sow and grow a place of your own.

St. Thérèse de Lisieux provides the perfect inspiration for seeking solace in the garden. "The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent or the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.”
