I tend to the lawn and gardens where I live almost entirely myself. They were in desperate shape when I took over and that is a state I seek to avoid. But there are many other states besides disaster and I enjoy or worry about all of them. It keeps me more fit than I would be and eases some stresses as well generating other stresses.
However, while I could blog many posts on many aspects of spring I will let a few shots taken today and mostly one Japanese magnolia tell the tale for me in brief as I go on to do other things.
Nature’s treasures have a spiritual, an artistic and a scientific dimension. I am eager to embrace all of those dimensions at the start of this year’s natural cycle.
