Each day we delight in the plants around us--what is popping up, producing food,budding, then flowering--not to mention what we are sowing and transplanting baby seedlings. It is both a relief and great joy to finally have our hands in the earth and have to scrub the dirt from our hands and tools. Now, if only the rain would give us a break, so I can get back out there!... ]]>
