It’s no secret that I love spring.

Winter is a good rest time for gardeners.

But really

How much rest do we need.

Sometime in February

When my desk is covered

With gardening catalogs

I begin to roam the frozen back yard.

Hellebores supply me with first hope.


They normally start showing their charming blooms

Around Valentine’s Day.

Lucky me.


But generally it’s another month

Before the real action begins.


Green dots begin to appear

Through the blanket of leaves.


With each walk down the path.

More and more

Reach for the sun.


And before I know it

The brown

Has turned to green.

The season begins

I’m home again.
