Beginnings of spring

July 24

Planted two tomato plants, cucumber, strawberries, basil seeds, cilantro, rue, chili peppers and lavender yesterday. Still have our survived thai basil, rosemary, baby basil and african basil plants from last year in pots strewn about the kitchen and on book shelves. I love watching our thai basil and rosemary come back to life. The ultimate joy for me this weekend was getting my hands dirty once again. It's amazing how much of a difference a few more little plants on the window sill makes. We breath better, the cats enjoy having more plants to rub their noses on and nothing makes me happier than to nurture and protect them and watch them grow.
