I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.

Absolutely true, Clueless. What more is there to say?

I think that's the way our world was created. Nature is a gift to us to enjoy, and it feeds our spirits to be part of it. I think we all enjoy using our creativity too as we plan and expand our gardens.
A lovely thought and so appropriate...

Agreed. Reminded me of one of my favourites:
The Peace of Wild Things
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
— Wendell Berry
Truly beautiful !!
Spritzhenry, there is more to say after all !!
Grammazoo, you've made my day with that.
That thought will resonate within me for a while yet.
Thank you, and God bless this website, and all who sail in her !!
