Of Olden Times - Found this right in the city but actually the folks on this particular street - their backyards are like country backyards backing up to the woods with clotheslines, woodpiles,and vegetable gardens, etc.
Last night it occurred to me as I was deleting 2013 photo files from my computer that what I am hungry for is GREEN! I want to see green sprigs, green grass in yards, green leaves on trees and more. Just hungry for GREEN! I am tired of brown grass, bare limbs, brown flowers and more. I want to see lots of GREEN, Green, green!
Speaking of Greens - Great news - The little pots of Basil and Parsley now have little green specks showing up. It is so amazing to watch nature through planting. I have six tiny spinach plants and 6 small kale plants to put in the ground. I think that may be on tomorrow's agenda. I am trying to decide whether to put in the ground or to plant in pots.
I have been watching the birds out and about the neighborhood as they are vying for their favorite nesting trees. I have observed them fussing and flying at other birds that visit their tree. I have seen robins running at little birds and chasing them out of yards.
Buds seem to be on trees and soon will bloom. However the little green shoots for daffodils and other early flowers just are not up yet. Last year they were in bloom at this time. It is always amazing to watch 3 blocks over blooming earlier or daffodils protected by trees getting it's buds earlier. I am really looking too closely for spring I know. It will be here before I know it and I need to be patient.
