I looked out my kitchen window this morning and saw many signs that Spring is just around the corner. Bright green daffodil spears poking out of the muddy soil. Buds sprouting on our cherry tree. A vibrant red male cardinal singing for his mate. Last year’s seed pod tinged with early morning hoarfrost. A pair of bouncing red-breasted robins foraging under the bird feeder.
Nature nudging me with gentle reminders: hang in there, my friend! Spring is in the air and soon windows will be thrown open to the fresh, sunny breeze and the scent of warming earth and lilac blossoms will waken my senses and bring lightness to my heart.
The days are growing longer and soon it will be time to dig up the garden beds and begin planting the vegetables, flowers, and herbs that we will be growing here on the farm.
