New Life Cycle

It’s been only three months when I last saw flowers in our garden but it seems a very long time ago.  The longing get worse when I see flowers in other bloggers gardens that are still blooming or spring flowers that have already come up.  Wishing that we lived in a warmer climate usually grips us at this time of year.  But gardening and beekeeping in extreme weather is a fun challenge and keeps me on my toes.  Good planning and timing is pretty crucial.  I have never been obsessed with checking weather this much in my life.  So many people I know wake up in the morning and check Facebook, Twitter, Email, even Snapchat, …I check the weather.

Finally, winter has released her grip in my neighborhood.  It has been warmer most days now: above 30°F and some days above 50°F. Early spring plants are responding accordingly.

And, my longing turns to itchiness.  Itching to get my hands in the dirt, get my arms scratched by the rose bushes, get bitten by insects, get natural vitamin D and end my day with aches and pain BUT happy and fulfilled.
