Peace in the apple orchard

My special place in nature this week -our small apple orchard. The trees are in full bloom, covered with fragrant blossoms. Despite the cold, damp weather, I sat on the ground for an hour,enjoying the beauty of the flowers and the delightful aromatherapy that filled the air.

Many of us know the therapeutic power of being in nature. Here are some links for more information on the health benefits, both physical and mental, of spending time outdoors.
