Spring and Gardening
Every year it happens. People say that the weather is unpredictable, but every year the same thing happens. The weather in Salt Lake fooled everyone but me. Each Spring, the weather turns warm and beautiful. The tulips and daffodils are fooled into coming from their underground dens. The ducks mate without shame on the lawns. The humans plant tender flowers and vegetables. Then, like clockwork, the Winter is back with a vengeance, crushing the tulip and daffodils, chilling the duck eggs and killing the flowers and vegetables.
I escaped it this year. I was busy with my new life and working my butt off somewhere else, so my flowers didn't get planted and my herbs sat in the kitchen window. My darling plants were spared the vengeance of the jealous winter this year. Spring is back for real now, and yesterday I planted my lovely flowers.
Here are some quotations about Spring.
