The snow is melting.
The puddles are huge.
The downspouts located.
The front door open.
The smile wide.
I was recently asked “How big is your garden”?
It sits on the North side of our home, meandering East to West.
It really is just about the right size!
A place to start and nurture my plants, a kitchen garden, Rabbit Run Cottage, and a few places to sit and relax.
Even when we lived in little apartments early in our married life, I gardened in little pots…that was the perfect size too!
Yes, you heard it here–size doesn’t matter!
Winter has been an experience this season.
Morning chores to feed a horse, donkey, chickens and ducks, met me with a calm 30 degree temperature.
It feels warm, it feels like the cold has broken, it feels like Spring will come!
The snowdrifts are deep and covering everything. To get to the greenhouse I have to circle around to the back gate.
But the trudging is worth it!
A sanctuary just waiting to be filled with seedlings and plants.
It truly is my happy place.
