Preparing for Spring

One thing that has happened in the last year and a half, is I ended my eight years of renting apartments or duplexes and I’m again, a home owner. This means I can garden in a yard. YAY!

So having two of my grands over for a sleepover, gave the perfect opportunity for them to plant a few bulbs. Ages seven and three, digging a trench for the bulbs was the perfect activity.

I love the metaphor of winter being a time of slowing down, rebuilding under the surface, that leads to flourishment in the Spring.

I can’t wait for the little shoots to spring up and pointing out to the grands that it is because of bulbs, trenches, and them.
