Relaxation with Garden Coloring
Posted April 10, 2020 12:30h in Creative Corner, Special Interest 6 Comments
Gardening, caring for houseplants, planning or planting balcony containers, or enjoying your blooming daffodils and tulips – these are all great sources of relaxation and distraction in these trying times. But what to do on rainy days? Color the garden!
Our gardener, Rebecca Armstrong, has taken some of her photos of the Scott Arboretum and turned them into coloring pages. Coloring has the ability to relax the fear center of our brains, the amygdala, and has been found to improve motor skills and vision, improve sleep, and improve focus.
We invite you to enjoy these coloring pages and the relaxation brought to you by the garden.

Thank you, Janean. This effort was thanks to the talent of Beck Armstrong, a gardener. She created these coloring pages and we just had to share.

This is a brilliant idea! If I didn’t have so many photographs to edit I would download a couple
of the coloring pages to work on “in my spare time ;)”

Thank you, Diane. Beck did an amazing job in creating these. I know she is creating some for the Peony virtual lesson on Thursday.
I hope you and yours are doing well. I am also hoping these April rains bring wonderful May flowers.
