"Gardens are a form of autobiography."
~ Sydney Eddison ~
Spring comes bearing gifts, but in return for these gifts, a certain amount of effort is required on our parts- to keep our grass mowed, our gardens weeded, and all of the growing goodness growing in check, else it will become problematic.
It's an invitation to work outside, a calling, and an urge- to manage what's coming up, plant what we want to nurture, and cut back whatever is toxic or out-of-control.
I carefully maintain all that is growing in my life.
