Despite the snowy drifts and bitter temperatures, we are in the beginning stages of planting season. It's always an optimistic time of year, but this year in particular brings so many positive changes: We can stroll out to our own greenhouse to start seeds. Our tools are stored in our barn. The apples and elders we planted as slender babies are beginning to take on a definite tree-like appearance. Our long-awaited blueberry patch is finally on the project list.
We had a glow surrounding us earlier this year. The exuberance that came along with our new barn and greenhouse had such a momentum, we were carried along on waves of positivity.
It's that seductive time of year again. The promise of spring is ripe; you see it in every flash of the red-winged blackbird's epaulets. It's a time of excitement and energy – before the rains, the heat, the wild temperature fluctuations, the weeds and pests. It's the beginning of our tempestuous love affair, a time to be dazzled by passion.
