There is something inherent in flowers that brighten our day and help us think about how beautiful the wild can really be. Flowers are a powerful representation of emotion and beauty.

The Outdoor Sights at Seagrove Park in Del Mar

Seagrove Park is a small but still magnificent example of coast living. As a park, you will see many visitors flying kites, walking down the beach, gazing at the ocean, walking among the flowers, or doing yoga under the ocean sky. There are plenty of benches and places to sit and ponder life as we know it. It is a small refreshment from our busy weeks.  Seagrove Park also offers the ability to host events, weddings, and other happenings. It is a well manicured park with no perceptible decay or trash. Walkways are unbroken and well maintained. On warm days you may find surfers and beach goers enjoy a few rays.  Park Management (858) 755-1524 lrogers@delmar.ca.us

People enjoyed the aesthetic beauty of watching wildlife and artistic paint laden within flowers.  When flowers and wildlife pictures are placed within the workplace it can reduce stress and increase productivity. Stress is one of the most profound killers within the country and a few more flowers, trees, and landscape pictures are unlikely to do you any damage.

Some put them within waiting rooms to reduce customer anxiety, others put them in their office to maintain focus, while still others like to give a more open view of tight space. Using pictures of nature can increase the overall image an
