they're here! it may not look or feel like spring in minnesota
but the ranunculus are in season and it's the best
harbinger of spring i can ever share with you. a
vase of these on your table will help ease even
the worst case of cabin fever.
if you can find them where you live, treat yourself
asap----- it will fill your happy cup, not just to half
full~ it will most likely overflow- so look out. : )
*i am so eager to start gardening for the year!...i'm
growing wheat grass in pots in the kitchen,
standing in front of the racks and racks of seeds
at fleet farm, imagining the sheer wonder that is
contained in those millions of little seed packets,
looking at gardening magazines that show us
impossibly beautiful gardens (that for a split
second we are silly enough to think we can
duplicate). it's all good. this season of rest can
be so necessary for the gardener-for months now
the ground here has been covered with snow.
there has been no flowers outside my door for
me to walk out and snip. now it's almost time for
the magic to begin again & i. am. ready.
