What is a full-on sensory experience in your backyard? Gardening! You can spice up your life through the tastes, smells and textures, get exercise through digging and squeezing the soil through your fingers, and feel the wind and sunlight, listen to the birds, see the sunrise (morning people), the sunset (night people) and generally be a citizen of nature in good standing--there in your backyard (or deck, patio, or even windowsill.)

Where do I find something to plant in the garden? Home and garden stores, even your grocery stores, frequently have living plants in the veggie area, such as rosemary, mint, and more. They aren't much trouble to grow, neither are tomato or squash plants.
