on earth day

Our garlic is up! 
The chives are happy! 
 The lilacs are leafing out!
 And the Magnolia? Beautifully in bloom! 
The earth continues to perform her gorgeous and mysterious celebration of life. You don't need a stretch of land to see this miraculous showcase... she weaves blossoms and greenery into the most urban settings. But I must admit, I am so thrilled with this little piece of the planet that is mine to care for and tend. And that is just what I've been doing. Clearing away the old... planting the new. The first of the vegetable seeds go in today- I'm putting my Taproot Trug to use and getting out in the dirt! 
that time of year again!

p.s. I'm offering free shipping to anywhere in the US when you purchase my book, Reinvention, all Earth week long! It's a perfect time to buy a copy for a friend or yourself...

  1. It's always encouraging to see green somewhere as we're in the midst of yet another snowstorm. Our daffodils and tulips came up, some daffodils even bloomed. A few scilla popped up between storms. Now everything is white again. Amazingly, the weather report says 70° by next weekend. Colorado in the spring: winter jackets one day, shorts the next.
