I have a small garden, about three square meters, which I call my refuge.
This is my personal piece of garden.
Our garden is much bigger, alhamdulillah, but only this corner I call my own.
It has exactly the right size to care for, not too small and not too big. This is the size I can dedicate myself to. This is the size of garden I like to offer my energy and time for.
Here I become more and more familiar with the power of plants. I do not really have a “green thumb”, but it is here where I learn how to cultivate healing herbs and wild flowers; where I spend my afternoons, inhaling the beauty, the smells, and the quiet and observing the changes of nature while drinking a cup of tea.
This little piece of land in front of my doorstep, right beside the kitchen window, gives me peace and inner harmony. Its green comforts my soul and the colours of the flowers fill me with thankfulness.
I call myself lucky to have this oasis, subhanallah, and I wish every woman would have one…to celebrate “Me time” in God’s beautiful creation…
