As I take this photo, we are lounging in the meadow immediately south of the garden enclosure. Well, actually, I am completely sprawled out on the ground while Micah scurries around exploring, smelling everything, and tasting something now and then for good measure.
April sailed in on a blue sky. Hurrah for April!
On this beautiful blue sky afternoon, I feel grateful for this season of growth.
The birds are mostly quiet in the late afternoon. As I lay in the field appreciating the wide sweep of blue I see above me, I hear only Micah's excited frisking and the occasional sharp call of our resident crows. An eagle glides across the expanse of brilliant blue in absolute silence.
I smell fresh air and warm puppy, as I push up from the cool earth. It is time to get moving. I have to water the seedlings in the house, which will be planted into the garden in a few short weeks.
Walking into the kitchen, spritzing the seedlings with a little mister, I pluck a tiny leaf from my tray of Asian Greens, and I taste vitality and freshness.
Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you a fulfilling season.
Tomorrow: Sunday Stroll. Join in with a post on your own blog if you can!
