Renewal Time

Renewal Time

"There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." -Anais Nin
A few days ago, on March 16th, the day and night length were equal for where I live. Globally, tomorrow is the March Equinox, and for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, it is the first official day of Spring. Ten days beyond that is another important date for my Odessa neighbors and me, the average last date of frost.

It's time to get busy. To bud. To blossom. To bloom. It's time to break from blogging. It's time to dig.

I'll see you again after my new garden is firmly planted.

I've been spending some time working in the yard and it feels good. Today, I scalped the front yard and now I am filthy dirty and bone tired!

Wishing you abundance in your crops to come!

Beautiful (apple?) blossom.

I'm trying to get one small flower bed near the back door dug out and replanted with herbs so all I have to do is trot out there and snip a few.

Reminds me of the time I spent in Japan when the Cherry Trees were filled with blossoms like these. Wait, I've never been to Japan! What the hell am I talking about?

For us, the Vernal equinox is March 20. Have fun digging in your yard. The bearded iris and clemitis are about ready to bloom here.

I enjoy watching and critiqueing other people's gardens, because I have none of my own, but I used to be quite a gardener in my other life, so I know how hot the passions get. Have a great old time.

I'm guessing that's a peach blossom. We had snow flurries 20 miles north of us this morning.
