The Land is Waking
The Land is beginning to wake here. Our temperatures are up and down, in the upper 20's some nights, but rising to near 70 degrees several days later, rain every 3 or 4 days. In our dining room I have a plate that holds some small bud vases with twigs cut from the forsythia and pussy willow in the yard.
We will have daffodils in bloom this week I think.
Likewise, the hellebores (so close to the ground they are easy to miss).
Self seeded hollyhocks!
Back in the house -- success in bringing the Christmas Cactus back in to bloom.
And my 25 cent "rescue" African Violet from Lowe's last winter seems to enjoy our south facing kitchen window also.
Yes, I can definitely feel it. The pulsating life force oozing from the Land.
