I love to go into the garden.
I sit quietly.
I see flowers and plants.
It makes me feel peaceful.
If I am very still,
I see birds, insects,
and creatures I had
not noticed before.
I can even hear them
Nibble, crunch, chomp.
Chew, bite, slurp,
swallow, gulp.
They are all hungry

Get ready to look and listen.
Get ready fbr fun in the quiet garden.
You can make your own quiet garden, too
