We are all so busy making lunches, getting kids to their sport or music lessons and doing the stuff of life, that sometimes its easy to forget to ‘stop and smell the roses’. Getting off the hurdy gurdy of life and being in the moment, be that by oneself or with family and friends, is a rare and precious treat – something at Eden Gardens we can help with.
Paradise differs for each person, but here at Eden in Macquarie Park we have a garden that some might say is close! It’s alive with flowers, water dragons, dancing water and sheltered spots to sit. You’re always welcome here to wander by yourself, with your children, your mother or partner. It’s a place to be at one with nature, and yes, we do have roses to admire and breathe in their wonderful perfume. We also have terrific hospitality offerings where fantastic food in a garden setting is sure to make mum smile, so book in for breakfast, brunch or lunch.
Naturally, down-time can be active or passive. Irene Virag, Pulitzer Prize winner and fellow of the Garden Writers of America said “zen is a state of calm attentiveness in which one's actions are guided by intuition rather than by conscious effort. Perhaps that is the zen of gardening—you become one with the plants, lost in the rhythm of the tasks at hand.” That could mean an hour’s
weeding with a podcast and a kneeling pad is the perfect gift, or perhaps event better, give mum a book and throw and let her find a nice spot in the sun while you weed and while away the hours!
At Eden we have some gorgeous Urban Oasis tao hemp cushions that are 20% off, and some beautiful lightweight and durable cotton blankets by Saardé that are also 20% off. Or really spoil mum with a lie-in on Urban Oasis silk pillowcases – the benefits of silk are a little more than just skin-deep. It is also naturally hypoallergenic so there’s no build-up of dust mites, fungus, mould and other allergens. Our silk pillowcases come in cream, mulberry, sage and blush for $69.98 each or 2 for $120.
For those that want a growing gift, we have stunning moth orchids and a bespoke range of kokedama balls for Mother’s Day and a limited-edition range of mini terrariums – simply cute as. Ditch the roadside sun-baked flowers and instead get mum a beautiful vase. We stock the organic shapes of Ben David vases, that are so lovely they look great out on display with or without the bouquet! Or simply add the scents of the garden indoors with our Urban Oasis range of home fragrances, on special with 20% off.
