welcome spring!

Wednesday, March 20

I put this dead-looking branch in some water a week or so ago, and I just noticed it sprouted its first shoot of green this morning. Welcome shoots, you're cute!

I'm super itchy for a garden right now. {Bet you'd never hear those words, did you mom.} For the majority of my childhood, we always had a garden. Each of us would get our own designated section of soil to plant what we'd like, weed it and take care of it throughout the summer. You have never heard such complaining! On Saturdays my sisters and I would head out to the garden, mostly against our will, to pull weeds. Which almost always turned into sitting in the dirt and dividing up ridiculous songs into soprano, alto and tenor parts, willing the weeds to pick themselves. The Garden Girls, we called ourselves. A genuine, weed-picking, eight, nine and eleven-year-old A Cappella group. Performances now only survived by VHS tape, and extremely special occasions.
Somehow those weeds did get picked though, and that garden did grow! And there is really just nothing like gathering around the table to eat the fresh summer corn you grew from your very own garden, is there? Loooooong sigh. Someday! Gardens and flowerbeds are the stuff that 5-year-plans are made of.

Happy first day of spring! And good juju to your tulips.
