I’ve played in the dirt most of my life, and yet, my skill set still leaves much to be desired. I try and educate myself on certain plants, soil and conditions, but there is so much more.
Finally, spring arrives and the first daffodil appears and hope is alive, once again.
Slowly things come to life.
I smile with anticipation, wondering what will blossom next and if my plants lasted through another harsh winter.
When summer draws to a close it becomes quite clear. Yes, Mother nature served me well, once again.
Soon it will be time to hibernate, but not until I pick the last tomato, green pepper and lettuce that cling to life. Yes, it is bittersweet leaving spring and summer. So, until next year, I will continue to dream.
