Ready to Dig

     I am itching to get my fingers in the dirt. Ready to smell the spicy, earthy smell that dirt has when you dig in it. Ready to get some sort of beautiful flowers started growing. I have visions of flower beds brimming with vivid color and my nose being tickled with the sweet scent from the flowers. I have long dreamed of having lush, flower filled gardens to walk in and enjoy. This is the year to start!
     There are so many different kinds of plants and ideas running through my head for what I see for this garden. I know that I will not be able to get to all of the plants and ideas this year-there are so many, but I will be able to get started and that alone makes me smile. Why have I waited so long? I don't really have an answer except that maybe I needed to mull things over.
     I have no plan for what to put where or anything specific that has to happen. I like to let things take on a life of their own. To let things create themselves into how they will end up. There are some things that are meant to be exact but mostly I find that if you let things, they will create themselves with a little help and gentle guidance.
    Patience is very much a part of all of this. One virtue I desperately lack in. I don't really have much of a choice other than to have patience. This I can muddle through as long as I have blooms.


  1. If you get a chance, type in Ruth Stout's Garden into Google and check out the video of her. I think you will enjoy it. I think of it often when I get to "anal" about planting. Like you, I would just as soon be a little surprised by nature.
