Quote of the Day: Elizabeth David

April 11th, 2010

“Every day holds the possibility of a miracle.”
~ Elizabeth David

This time of year the garden changes daily, new things are blooming and the world is coming alive. Every time I got outside I see something new and exciting. The world of brown is being transformed into a world of color each and every day. Here are a few shots from my garden this past week.

I’m certainly enjoying this lovely time. Spring is the best time for gardening, the weather is perfect, it’s exciting, there are few weeds and all the chores are fun. I’m making sure to enjoy the most of these early days in the garden. Soon enough the drudgery of weeding and the hot sticky weather will be upon us.

What miracles are happening in your garden this week?
