There’s a Christmas song that says that time is the most wonderful time of the year. I disagree, and think this is the most wonderful time of the year.
Everything is lush right now, green all around. And If you’re a regular reader, you know I’m fascinated (obsessed?) with watching beans grow. So now there are beans up at each pole of my bamboo pergola, and that gets me out in the garden several times each day, checking to see how they are doing.
This time of the year, the gifts come from the earth. Watching things grow, getting ready to produce food, from seeds that have grown the same plants for centuries, the magic of the earth, the best of everything.
