It’s hard to believe that it’s March already. This year is already off to a speedy start. Next Sunday ends Daylight Savings time, and then spring really is just around the corner (21st). I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m definitely ready for spring. I’m ready for warmer weather. There are signs all around that spring is close at hand.
I’m praying that this weekend will be dry so that we can turn our garden. It’s been too wet every weekend here lately so we’ve not been able to do it before now. I’m so itching to feel the dirt between my toes, see rows of dirt just waiting for the precious seeds that we will plant, then waiting for the first signs of life, that there will so be rows and rows of yummy goodness just waiting to be picked and either eaten or preserved for next winter.
I’m anxious to see the trees in full bloom again and to feel the soft green grass tickling my feet as I walk barefoot in the yard. I can’t wait for the warm, windy days when we can go out in the front field and fly kites.
Don’t get me wrong. I do NOT want this year to go any faster, I would actually like to slow it down, but this time of year always has me wishing for the time when I can get my hands (and feet) dirty. I guess, for now, I’ll have to be content with dreaming of what my garden will be like full of home grown goodness!
