Use of Greenery in Home Decoration

“Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.” A quote by H. Jackson Brown,Jr tells us at point blank the relation between human beings and their love towards each other and nature. Living beings have a certain bond built by God between them. That bond cannot be explained by a mere notion that living cares for living; after all we do consume trees, vegetable and animals as food in our daily use. It is the bond of care with which we carry them along and nurture them even if they will be consumed by us at a later stage.
