Chicago’s Flower and Garden Show

This week, I had numerous health coaching sessions that filled me with pride! My clients are making huge breakthroughs in both their health and happiness. I am beyond fortunate to work with so many inspiring people. As a health coach, I help educate and guide individuals and groups on how to make healthy food and lifestyle choices. In turn, they teach me a wealth of information along the way.

For example, one of my clients highly recommended Chicago’s Flower and Garden show, a show that I had not attended in the past. I took his recommendation and had the great pleasure of viewing Chicago’s beautiful gardens at Navy Pier. Wow, what a sight! Not only are gardens aesthetically pleasing, but they have many incredible health benefits. They are calming, relaxing and uplifting, they offer an abundance of nourishing foods, and they are extremely important to the environment.

Here are a few of my favorites from the show:

Alice’s Wonderland

This was by far my favorite garden!  It was bold and beautiful, especially with the Queen of Hearts.

Good vs. Evil – The Wicked Garden

I am a huge fan of the musical Wicked, which made me love this garden. I especially loved the Thyme and Basil plants, the ruby red slippers and most importantly the overall meaning of the garden: “We are all different but not less.” What a wonderful and powerful message!

This is a good reminder that even some of the scariest looking plants can be beautiful.
