Signs of Spring

I spent Easter Sunday clearing away old yard debris in preparation for the new Spring growth. That felt like a symbolic way to honor the energies of resurrection and rebirth. Now we’ve got some 70 and 80 degree days, urging me to plant seeds. I can probably plant some outside, despite us being over a month away from final frost date. I also figured out a new indoor seed starting and LED light fixture system, which I’ll set up on the New Moon.

Meanwhile, some photos from this morning:

hyacinths in bloom, with more shoots to come
daffodils blowing in the wind
sedum poking through last year’s growth, plus irises, onions and a pot of mint (still sleeping)
rhubarb
young nettles in a huge pot, getting ready for pesto
more daffodils bobbing in the wind

So many things seem so surreal right now, but Nature continues its cycles, bringing beauty, color and cheer. Enjoy each moment! All have purpose.

    I can almost smell the sweet fragrance of the hyacinth in your garden. Nettles for pesto? That’s a new one for me. Nettles don’t seem to grow in Florida, LOL!

    • Yes, it smells heavenly outside! I think nettles like cooler weather than Florida. So yummy and nutritious, though! They make a wonderful pesto. 🙂

    Beautiful. I wish I could say the same for me here in Croatia. We had an arctic blast 2 days and anyone that planted seedlings outside just lost them. Intuitively I knew not to transplant mine from the greenhouse, sure glad I was in tune because they would not have survived the night. Wonderful garden, awesome and your photos wow, supreme beings.
