I love spring. When the earth begins to awaken, new life begins, and the everything feels alive and fresh and green again. It just totally renews my soul and spirit.
I spent my days off this week working in the warm, sunshine filled yard. Birdsong filled the air and gentle breezes kissed my face. So beautiful.
Well maybe not my yard...not yet at least, but it's coming along. I'm still tackling all the weeds that got the better of us last year (removed 3 full trashcans worth of the suckers), but I can envision in my mind so vibrantly how it will look in a few months when it is bursting with sustaining life and beauty... bees in flight, a rainbow of flowers blooming, crunchy, sweet vegetables ripe for the picking.
It is so clear in my mind I can almost taste the fresh crunch of the snap peas and the red juice of the tomatoes.
So as I pop out each weed, making way for a new seed beds it brings a smile to my face and fills me with hope.
