Today, I am thankful for seeds for sowing.
In my garden there is a large place for sentiment. My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams. The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful. ~Abram L. Urban
One of the most delightful things about a garden is the anticipation it provides.
~W.E. Johns, The Passing Show
The best place to seek God is in a garden. You can dig for him there.
~George Bernard Shaw
I spent the morning hoeing the beds in the backyard garden to breakup the mulch, aerate the soil and prepare the ground for seeds, hundreds and hundreds of flower seeds. I chose special wildflower and perennial mixes designed to attract the hummingbirds and butterflies that I love.
Seeds sown. Garden watered. Now I must wait for Mother Nature to take over.
The "recipe" calls for rain and warm sunshine. If all goes well, in a month or so, I'll see hundreds of tiny green plants breaking through the dirt and mulch.
The beginnings of a beautiful garden. The promises of life and beauty.
Indeed, I shall reap what I have sown.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
