Changing of the Seasons

The wheel is turning again.  If you quietly listen, you can almost hear the sounds of the new growth beginning around you.  When you smell the air, the gentle scents of fresh earth and early flowers permeate your nose.  As you look closely, you can see the shoots pushing through the cold earth and the buds starting to swell on the branches.  Early plants have begun to flower as my own witch hazel has done.

Spring is coming.  She is whispering in the wind and floating through the air.  Do you see it?  Do you hear it?  Do you smell it?  Are you ready?

My seeds have been ordered and added to the saved seeds.  Soon I will begin my starts, the plants that need a longer growing season than I have.  Time to start cleaning out the flower beds and checking what is pushing forth.  Spring pruning is around the corner.  I need to order my trees too.

I am excited for spring.

I am ready to grow.
