Spring, Sprang, Sprung.

Spring has sprung. Thank goodness. I am afraid I am going to blink and it will be the dog-days of summer. So I am trying to soak it all in as fast as possible.

I love that quote by Audrey Hepburn,

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”

What a truism. The anticipation and hope for the life spouting again from deep within the earth is one of the things that gets me through the winters.

I always feel this pressure in the winter, it’s hard to just take a cue from the rest of nature and simply hibernate. Once spring hits it is so easy to be inspired by everything around me, never without something to photograph, never have a hard time finding something to do right out my own back door.

I love listening to the forest come back alive with the birds singing in orchestra among the chorusing frogs. I love the smells, the textures, the bold and subtly different colors of the landscape. And I just love that the sun is back. My dear friend, the sun, and how she delicately filters her rays through the canopies.

Ah, bliss.

And now I can finally begin toiling in the gardens. Aside from photography, it’s one of the things I truly love doing in life.

My Sunday will involve getting dirt under my fingernails as I welcome onions, broccoli, assorted peppers, green beans, watermelon and zucchini to their new home in my vegetable garden. I got the tomatoes and cucumbers in last week and already found that I have my work cut out for me to keep the chickens away from those fresh little green sprouts. It’s like they think I put it their just for their enjoyment 😉

I hope you all have been enjoying your weekend like I have.
