"Hope is being able to see that there is light despite the darkness."
The sky was on fire and colorful in every direction. The lake was still frozen, but showing signs of cracking and opening with the sun's unseasonable warmth.
This experience didn't impart new knowledge; rather, it prompted spiritual acceptance that the sun will always rise and will always set ... until it doesn't. I might as well enjoy moments of beauty and gifts of living on this stunning, fragile planet, as it spins through space. I'll try to do my part, as one of many stewards of its resources.
How about you? What garden inspirations and lessons have you learned or reflected on during the past season?
Contributions from both hemispheres and all continents are welcome! To join in the "Garden Lessons Learned" meme, simply write a post or share one you've already written about lessons you've learned during the past season. Then share your links or observations in the comments on this post. This post will be available always under the "Lessons Learned" tab at the top of this blog. I'll share your posts on the PlantPostings Facebook Page closer to the equinox.
Happy spring to friends in the Northern Hemisphere, and happy autumn to those in the Southern Hemisphere!
(I'm taking a little blogging break for an exciting adventure! I'll share highlights after I return.)
