and glint and glance in their flight like a boy's kite.
~ John Muir
John Muir had such a lovely concept of seeds, didn't he? As I plant, I am inclined to think of playing with beads. I love the variety of shapes and sizes, the soft natural palette of colors: shades of green, gray and brown, gold and coral.
At any rate, it has begun! I have started planting the seeds for this year's garden. First, we will sow trays full of onion seed: Copra and Cortland (two varieties of yellow storage onions.) Next, we will plant Ring-o-Fire Cayenne and Ruby King Bell Peppers. Soon, little Amish Paste Tomato seeds will get tucked into the soil. These are just the beginning!
It is a silly thing, perhaps, to be so excited to see the first little leaves of green... but I feel it, nevertheless. That sweet shade of green, peeking up through dark seed-starting soil, reassures me that spring is on the way; the wide wheel of the year is turning.
Where ever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you hope!
