In the garden....
The baby peas have poked there heads out of the ground.
There is a plentiful supply of Spinach sprouts.
And the lettuce bed is green enough to entice rabbits from miles around...hmmm, better work on getting that fence back up!
Just in case you are wondering...the lettuce plants are not from the seeds I planted, although they are starting to sprout and grow as well. I found some very health looking lettuce plants ~Red and Romaine~ at my local feed supply and I decided that these would do nicely to tide me over until my seeds were fully developed.
I love this time of year, the new growth that signals rebirth. Watching the earth awake from its slumber and renew its cycle. It reminds me of my place in it all: the spectator, the caretaker, the recipient of the most precious gift of all...LIFE. I am so grateful that I inherited my Grandfather's soul of a gardener. Even though the rewards of gardening are enough reason to love it, for me it runs so much deeper than just providing food. Its a connection with the world around me. Pardon the pun, but it keeps me grounded.
You didn't know you were going to have philosophy with your coffee this morning, did you? LOL!!
I hope you all get a chance to get outdoors and observe Nature's Springtime Show......It's FREE:)
