That massive restructuring I wrote about two and a half weeks ago?  Barely begun.  Unexpected things emerged, good but unresolved, requiring my attention.  And tomorrow’s continued warm weather mandates a day in the garden, a different sort of restructuring.  I laughed out loud when I read this post of Aimee’s; I feel the same way about not having paid for this weather, and I also didn’t quite trust the first few warm days.  But the crocuses and other wee shoots are proof that, even if there’s a relapse into the winter we didn’t have, spring is determinedly on its way. I need a day in the garden for more than a celebration of warmth; life right now parallels what’s happening out there.  I cast out a few random seeds over the winter, and some of them are sprouting, but I won’t know till later in the season which will thrive.

  1. i. love. your. garden. shoots. as in, the shoots as well as the pictures. it’s something i realize i look forward to each year but only remember it when i see the posts! you have certainly earned those, and everything else to come. thanks for sharing!

  2. Yeah, such a change from last year’s weather here as well. Had I not taken wet/muddy shortcuts on my walking adventure today, I could have worn my Birkies: this time last year, we had four-foot high drifts and frigid temperatures.

    I’m still waiting for that one big major planting to do, well, something (sprout or not is almost immaterial: just make up your freakin’ mind already!), and am organizing auxillary growth just in case as well. 😉

  3. Thanks, all: may your gardens grow beautifully!

    Re: auxiliary growth: whatever thrives in mine will require thinning out in other areas…I won’t have room for them all to flourish, at least not at once.
