Mulching the trees and hedges. Cleaning and repairing pots. Breaking up soil. It's spring, things are starting to grow. Already there are buds on the trees. Hyacinths and buttercups are pushing up through the dirt. Everywhere there is a pungent smell, a scent that speaks of the fecundity of nature. I love it.Gotta be patient. Take it slow. There will most likely be a few more weeks of winter. Still, hard to resist the temptation to plant seeds and put out shrubs. Have to be satisfied with turning the compost, raking the leaves. Clearing a path for new life.
