They have started to come in already looking for tomato and pepper plants. I wonder if they admire the daffodils in the flower beds. Or the bright burgundy-red shoots of emerging peonies. Or unfolding Japanese maple foliage....
Well the spring energy is now here. I am sure you can feel it, this surge "to do". I am completely scattered (more than usual!) and can't seem to focus on any one task (more than usual!).
So I found myself ever dismayed at today's forecast. Rain all day, heavy at times, possibly switching over tonight to....snow??!! I had made a long list of things that would be done today, on Wednesday. Now the list sat on the counter, without a single "done" check.
We gardeners are starting to venture outside. We can't be contained any longer. We must go be with our plants. Some discoveries are less than joy full.
Happily spending time outside today. I have the task of finding where to squeeze in about 2 cords of scavanged firewood for next year's winter season. A lady down the street said we could have her fallen trees. Her shade garden was now a sun garden. She asked me to help her re-plan in the spring.
