On my afternoon stroll I noticed many new buds and shoots! Then when I got home I discovered garden blogging. There really are 'more garden blogs than you have time to read' out there.
I enjoyed these pretty pictures and descriptions...
...and I shall enjoy the blooms in my neighborhood more day by day. On my way home I saw several small budding branches lying on the ground, torn off their tree in a nearby churchyard by Saint Patrick's Day revelers (I suppose). I brought some home and put them in water. I will find out what kind of tree this is and make a spiritual companions of it.
Now I am planning to plant seeds in my life, literally this year's go round as well as spiritually.
