Does anyone else find themselves spending more and more time out by the plants? It has become my mediation spot.

It's one of the reasons I took up gardening and eventually permaculture/homesteading.....to be out there in nature all the time, most of every day. Bit hard to do with the day's high temp over 110, but I still get a few hours in!
And meditation/journal/prayer time is usually outside also....

It's damn hard to pry myself away when the pressures of life are telling me to leave for work or go get something done on my house building project. It's so great just to wander around the homestead looking at stuff. Usually I'll find myself accidently doing a little harvesting/ foraging, transplanting, or hacking down the "weeds" too.
I recently got the chance to hang out with my former high school ecology teacher. He's into competitive pigeon flying (yes it's real and it's serious) and spends a several hours nearly every morning watching his pigeons fly while sipping tea out on his restored native prairie. He also stays occupied with the recent addition of short-horn cattle which he rotates through to improve the prairie.
Everyone should get to experience the pleasure of peaceful, naturalish surroundings.
