New beginnings. That is how I've always thought of Spring and Easter – as a time for new beginnings. What will this year bring? What will the garden bring this year? I walk the garden daily – tiny, new beginnings are hatching all around. The peas have sprouted. More bulbs are peeking up through the soil. The Dogwoods have tiny budding flowers. The Crabapples are going to open any day and from afar are now a pink haze. The ginger leaves are up, folded like a butterfly's wings. They are fuzzy and seem huge. I see my first Cabbage White wings catching the sun. I will be visiting family for Easter which I don't want to miss, but I hope I don't miss too much in the garden, either. Happy Easter!
