This past weekend, our entire family enjoyed being outside working on projects. I spent Friday morning in solitude and I walked around our property marveling, as I always do, at the beginning of Spring.
Naming this season “Spring” is no mistake. The greenery springs forth from the ground and the buds spring forth from the trees. I feel like I can actually feel the excitement from the plants. They are waking up after a long winter’s nap.
Spring makes me feel hopeful. Spring is filled with possibilities and new growth. I wonder what trees and bushes will fruit this year. I wonder how my lettuces will do (I have been learning how NOT to raise lettuce.) I am so excited for all the possibilities. All of the cliches, all of the sayings feel so true to me. It feels as though they have been written just for me.
Everything seems to be waking up to welcome the warm weather. As we stretch out our arms after a long rest, the trees and bushes reach out their leaves to collect the sunshine and feed themselves.
The dandelions open to feed bees the first nectar of the season.
Strawberries are starting to bloom as well.
And we already have some of cultivated edibles ready for eating.
Welcome Spring, we are glad you have back again!
