I love this time of year! Warm days, cool mornings...the smell of spring! I think, though that watching my garden grow is one of my favorite things in the spring. Yesterday I noticed that my corn is starting to sprout and there are blossoms on the sweet peas. One broccoli plant has survived, and I could probably harvest enough spinach for a small salad. ;-) This year I'm especially excited that we have peaches on our trees for the first time, though we probably won't be here to harvest them. One apple, a few pears, and possibly a few apricots are out there, too.
I find that gardening reminds me of the miracle of life. That one tiny seed can become a plant that provides nourishing food amazes me. And it is a reminder that the tiniest seed can blossom in a person's life, too. Whether a kind word or a smile, we can make a true difference in another person's life. And as that seed blossoms, that person will also produce fruit that can nourish and bless many others.
