“Gardeners and florists are the happiest of all the professions ... nearly twice as happy as people in more prestigious and better-paid jobs.” – Professor Paul Dolan, UK economist and behavioural scientist.
You might not know this, but today is Garden Day in South Africa – the perfect opportunity to take a moment to celebrate the abundance of greenery in our country. This is not a corporate or for-profit event, but meant to be a movement to spread the love of gardening to all South Africans. Why not read on a lawn or in your closest park. Or have an impromptu picnic?
You can even make your own floral headgear like this year's Flower Crown ambassadors are wearing. Remember to post your pictures on social media with the hashtag #GardenDay. Let’s celebrate our gardens together.
