“The Infectious Love Bug”

Standard

There is not only an infectious love fever going around this time of year with Valentine Day on the horizon, but spring fever is in the air as well. They both involve one big symptom, LOVE, and with all the flu and viruses going around this is one feverish infection I don’t mind catching.

While the Valentine cards we get in the mail will come and go, the gardening magazines and seed catalog’s will give us something longer lasting to read through, plan with, and dream about. We could all use a few dreams of sunshine and warmer weather about now, don’t you agree?

It was my Dad who taught me the love of gardening, but it was a special friend who taught me how the love of gardening could be compared to friendship. In a card she sent me many years ago she wrote that, “Friends are like flowers in the garden of life.” She taught me that our friendships need the same care and nurturing that our gardens do if we want them to continue blooming.

Every year at this time I think of her as my garden magazine’s and seed catalogs come in the mail. It’s a time not only to plan my gardens, but also to check-in with how well I’ve been nurturing and tending my friendships.

Whether it’s the love of your honey, family, friends or the things you enjoy doing where there is love everything in life blossoms .

This is dedicated to you my dear friend…Denise.

“One Of The Many Lessons Of Spring”

Standard

I recently wrote about how in the springtime love is in air. Like the birds I watch, they fly around having fun enjoying the company of each other. Spring does that to us as well. We feel the renewal of the season. It energizes us making us want to reconnect with those we love as well. I wonder though, do we really need a season to come along to remind us how to get back in touch with those we love? Than I think, maybe it’s part of waking up from the sleepy winter. A chance for renewal, rebirth, and rekindling with one another. The seasons do have a lot to teach us if we keep our mind & heart open to what they have to say.
