It's officially summer, and nothing screams warm weather like a lush, green garden.

This year, I'm proposing we all add a little bit of variety to our blooms and dot our flowerbeds with crystals.

Yes—you read that right. Like plants, crystal stones are formed within the earth, so it's only fitting to add them to your landscapes, too.

Look for colors that relate to the water, earth, and sun. Greens and yellows are great, with green being the color of nature and yellow the color of the sunlight it needs to blossom. You can store these stones in a pretty bowl, place them next to a fountain, align them in a windowsill display, or root them directly in the ground. Their natural beauty will please your eye, and their positive, nourishing energy will encourage a bountiful growing season.

Here are a few I'd recommend starting with:

1. Moss Agate
