  • The Earth Renewing Itself

    I’m so delighted.  (Of course, it doesn’t take much to make me happy.)  I took my first walk-about in the garden.  I couldn’t inspect everything as there is still a good amount of snow and ice scattered everywhere and where I could walk was still feeling hard – as in frozen.  Nevertheless, I saw little heads peaking through the frozen earth.  My tulips, hyacinths and daffodils are coming alive.  What a thrill.

    It’s funny, I quite like winter.  I love Christmas and all the festive decorations.  I love the look of the sun shining on newly fallen snow.   I love the long nights and short days.  I love curling up in front of the fire watching Netflix movies while sipping on hot chocolate.  It’s all so cozy and homey.  What’s not to like?

    Then comes a time when the weather starts to change.  Changing of the cold to warm season and vice versa is always messy and unattractive.  The melting snow mixes with the sand and salt which the snowplows deposited on the property.  What an ugly mess.  In time, the rains will come and wash all that away and everything will be pretty and new again but the process is a mess.

    So this is almost the end of March.  This weekend is Easter.  They’re forecasting rain.  I’m not complaining.  My garden needs a shower.
