I was writing my post in noise when this thought suddenly occurred to me.
Plants are not just a decoration in our garden, nor just a portion of food that we can serve to our family but plants also do teaches us a lot of things every day.
If you will think about it, growing or taking care of plants does contribute a lot to our attitude and behavior. From seed to a full-blown plant, they are teaching us a lesson that we didn't notice every day.
Here's what I notice that plants do teach us every day.
To be Patient
Plants teach us to be patient. You cannot just leave a plant in a pot and it will grow on its own. You have to water them every day, sometimes plants require watering twice a day. Different plants need different requirements and so we have to adjust what the plant needs. There are times that you also have to put fertilizer on it. Cut or remove the dead leaves and put them on the soil to become a fertilizer too. Some plants require pruning while others require thinning, some do prefer direct sunlight while others prefer under the shade. The plant doesn't grow overnight. You have to learn to wait for the right time for it to grow and bloom.

To be caring
Plants teach us to be caring. In order for the plant to grow and be healthy, we have to look after them, we have to nurture them. We have to give them what it needs. We place them in the sunlight, we put the right soil to them, in short, we also take care of them just like what we do with our family. We shelter them from rain and too much sun. And in return, plants do give us oxygen.
To be appreciative
Plants teach us to be appreciative. As they grow every day, you can notice that they improve every day. Plants do inspire us every day that makes us see the beauty that it is offering. They have their own appeal that no one can resist, may you be a plant lover or not, it is hard to ignore the beauty of plants.
To be happy
Plants teach us to be happy. Plants grow on their own with or without proper care from humans but there are plants that need nurturing. However, plants don't rely on the validation of other plants for them to grow beautifully and happy. With having enough sunlight, water, and a good soil they grow happily. And they are also sharing to us that happiness by growing well and healthy. And if you notice, plants do always turns to the sun, soaking up the light and turning it into energy to help them become healthier.
To be adaptable
Plants teach us to be adaptable. Plants have the ability to adapt to any kind of season. They know that the only constant here on earth is change. They even know when to bloom or when to hunker down and protect themselves. During summer, they bloom and soak to as much sunlight and energy as they can get and during the rainy season some plants shed their leaves and hibernate. Plants do know what season is coming and just like us they also prepare themselves on how they are going to strive or know what they need to toughen up for the coming season.
Plants are not just a mere decoration in our environment, aside from providing oxygen that is important to us they also teach us some lessons that are needed in our daily lives.
