Mother Earth Day
So I decided to take a quick stroll this morning through my garden before heading into work. Once again I was inspired by the miracle of plants and how gardens and green spaces tug at my heart and soul. Indulge me, please…
Is there anything else that can feed a soul and a body? My peas, fava beans, arugula, lettuce and other greens are emerging as the soil begins to warm. The figs and grapes are starting unfurl their leaves and the columnar apples and blueberries are blossoming. I have much to look forward to with the gift of nourishment, hope and a sense of accomplishment.
Even decay in the garden is a beautiful thing, as is the unfurling of new life and the shape-changing form of ferns.
Anticipation of beauty and expectation vibrates in the garden on this Earth Day and—for me—every day in the garden. And I feel blessed that the other creatures on this Earth—the birds, bees, squirrels, Barney, earthworms—let me share it with them.
