gnarled tree

The garden bed is still littered with last year’s leaves. Perennial onions are ready to bloom, while across the bed, bright green ruffled lettuce sprout all by themselves. I didn’t remove the lettuce last year before it went to seed. The seeds survived the winter and sprouted into a tasty spring salad. Tomatoes poke up through my azalea in the flower bed where the previous owners planted them at least six years ago. I pull them out every spring, but they are some hardy buggers….


I’m honored to share a guest-post with Jessica Bowman as she and her family are in the midst of a cross-continental move. It would be such an encouragement to her if you would head over there to read the rest of the post and join the conversation.
