🛻 Content Jungle Vol. 005 🛻

Gardens are really interesting, because they pull you into the present moment. That's very relaxing when we're thinking about the future all the time.
But also they're cyclical. So there's a sense that things decline, but then they return - I have found that deeply uplifting, especially during the conditions of the pandemic and everything that followed it.” 
- Olivia Laing in The Garden Against Time
