DREAM DICTIONARY - Garden :Gardens link to ideas , habits, relationships that are growing on us and becoming deeply meaningful. So the state of the garden is important. An green garden suggests you are growing and interested in life at present. A sparse garden with little growth suggests that close relationships mean nothing much to you, or that you have become disinterested in life right now. Try and relate the dream to new feelings coming out from your mind. So if you were spiritually enlightened the night before and felt a surge of energy and interest it will relate to that.
