Hope Lives in the Garden


A seed is hope. Put a dry brown kernel in a spoonful of soil with a drop of water, a ray of light and whatever time it takes, and you're giving life to hope.

That's the real reason people are gardeners.  

Every seed we sow, every plant we plant affirms our future. Hope of food for the table or medicine for health or shelter for wildlife or beauty for the mind.

Living hope.

  1. I'm happy you're blogging again!

  2. Thanks Elizabeth! It feels good to be writing for fun again.

  3. I agree with Elizabeth: happy to see/read you here again. :)
    As to seeds: I've had quite some success with growing Bois d' Arcs from seeds. Am trying to grow other trees and shrubs, too - with various success.

    1. Thanks Pit! A number of wildflowers grow readily from seed (if there is rain and they aren't eaten by deer) including bluebonnets, standing cypress, rain lillies, blanket flower, mexican hat, cypress vine, sunflowers, and more. Happy planting!


My readers are all geniuses. Can't wait to see what you have to say.
