Just a few words to assure you that winter in Ohio will end and the spring will come. Mother nature will warm us and surround us with greenery, warmth and beauty.
I had an interesting thought (to me) the other day. I wondered if Mother Nature misses the feel of my bare feet in her earth as much as I miss the feel? Could she need the connection with me as much as I need the connection with her? I think the answer is yes. So if we’re both feeling the loss in this frigid tundra we call winter, what can we do to help ourselves and our planet?
A friend reminded me that it’s a great time to repot plants in the house. Our hands can enjoy the dirt and nurturing our green friends the same as when outdoors. We’re also drawing near to the time of planning gardens and even starting our plants indoors. So I opened my personal seed stash and began my list of what I wanted to add to the garden this year. Perhaps a cruise thru a few online seed catalogs. I found http://www.seedsofchange.com , http://www.seedsavers.org/onlinestore/ , and a list of seed catalogs on http://www.organicgardening.com/learn-and-grow/seed-catalog-time to light my fire. Other favorites?
So… dig in my gardening inclined friends. And if you feel that you’re not so inclined… perhaps it’s time to adopt a houseplant? Meet my new “friend” at the gallery, Hyacinth.
Peace and much love,
