As the season starts to turn, it seems to happen at a snail’s pace…literally.
It’s like the orchestra tuning to find that perfect pitch.
Things seems to unfold in starts and fits, and we keep saying…”just wait.”
And then, after an almost unbearable pause…the symphony begins.
Every tree is dressed in leaves and blossoms,
and every sleepy plant and creature awakens.
When I am away during the week, I miss the Memorial Garden. This weekend, the return took my breath away.
The earth is alive;
the creatures so busy;
and the gardeners so hardworking –
except for Yule, who just keeps us company.
“It was such a pleasure to sink one’s hands into the warm earth, to feel at one’s fingertips the possibilities of the new season.” ~ Kate Morton, The Forgotten Garden
Spring brings the dogs out in force,
and from their stories, we have learned this: symphonies have more than one movement –
and you can bury a lot of troubles by digging in the dirt.

we have not seen flowers yet but it is finally getting warmer here in my Michigan home
Feet of snow still on the ground and flurries for today. 😦 I’m loving your spring photos full of color and life, but we need a few new additives to describe the beauty of the flowers, friendly pups, devoted volunteers, and your photography skills. 🙂
I wish I could package some and overnight it to you…but it would probably be delayed in a snowstorm somewhere! Anticipation makes the heart grow fonder…they say!
Beautiful photographs ~
Oh my! Can you send all those terrific gardeners over to my place? I want a special garden like HB Memorial. Oh and bring all the dogs too LOL. It is just fabulous and your story of spring – so beautiful. My golden, Rosie, her sissy Miss Sassy and their cat bro Rudy, would love their own memorial garden. A special place to relax, play and remember all the dogs and kitties that relaxed and played in their yard before them (we’ve had many).
Job well done HB gardeners❤️
The only things that have “bloomed” on our trees so far are the pollen pods. UGH! I’ll be glad when the leaves pop out to help mitigate some of the pollen at least! I’d even be happy with dandelions right now. Lol
