All through the long winter, I dream of my garden.

On the first day of spring, I dig my fingers deep into the soft earth.

I can feel its energy, and my spirits soar.

    I love watching the rebirth of everything in Spring. The aromas from my deck where I have herbs in pots as the warming breeze stirs them releasing their fragrance. The birds with their mating songs and the longer days warm my heart.

We left that morning, and spent a constant three weeks in the hospital during the drought. Needless to say, we lost everything. This spring is special because we have decided to try again. With limited finances, because of the new medicines, growing our own food will help out quite a bit. I have my seeds sprouting, and am counting the days!

    Ah – the joy of discovering what survived the winter! I grow many of my perennial flowers (and most of my vegetables) from seed. When they reward me for the previous year’s nurturing by poking up out of the ground to flower another year, I am like a proud mother seeing her child pass a grade in school. It has been in the 60s and 70s here in NC, and it is my absolute favorite time of the year. Aches and pains from pruning, mulching and weeding are battle-won invisible badges of honor. My vegetable seeds have already germinated (in my kitchen, for want of a greenhouse), and I am growing 14 varieties of of tomatoes (supposedly heat-tolerant, disease resistant and able to set fruit over 90 degrees varieties) this year. Tomato trials 2013, here I come!

    Spring to me is the affirmation of the cycle of life. Things considered dead are once again born to produce a new life. I love watching the trees put forth their green buds.

    Spring awakens the senses. While we were slumbering in the dark of winter Mother Nature was working behind the scenes to present us with beauty and wonder that reminds us why it’s good to be alive.

  • By Suzanne Carfora - Reply

    Spring is my favorite season, a new beginning for everything. Living in Arizona this is the season I miss the most. When I lived in Long Island NY I was out as soon as the weather permitted. I love the idea of the new beginnings coming, the smell in the air, the buds seen everywhere. I loved the first site of my crocuses and the blooming of Forsythia along all the roadways. I started my seedlings in a small mock greenhouse I had made. I started rooting cuttings as soon as possible and just lost myself in the garden for hours and hours. My beautiful red (pink) & white dogwoods, my cherry trees and apple trees all starting to bloom. The Azaleas blooming. Throughout the winter I picked out new plants & shrubs to add to my garden as well as the anticipation of splitting up my perennials. I looked forward to spreading the black gold compost I made through my tumbler. I had my 2 boys work on their own small gardens as well as having them become totally involved with ours. It was wonderful to spend our days outside together, learning more and more each year. I loved finding new ways to present plants. Unfortunately we had to leave NY but the remembrance of those Springs,the new beginnings and the anticipation of the garden growing each year will always remain in my memory as some of the best times I had in my life. Spring will always remain my favorite season and remind me of very special times I shared with my children. Everyone should think of Spring as a new beginning, a time of renewal and take advantage of the wonderful weather. Take the time to stay outdoors and breathe the freshness in the air and enjoy the site of the buds on the trees and flowers starting to grow everywhere. The fresh new green of the leaves and lawns as well as all the new growth on shrubs and trees. I live in an apartment now but have a small courtyard which I plan to turn into a wonderful, colorful container garden. Nothing though will replace the wonderful garden I had and Spring in NY. I truly miss the kind of flowers I was able to have, but it is Spring and I will make due with beautiful drought tolerant plants and enjoy the new beginnings to come. I must sound like a real mush. I look forward to see all of your new ideas and creations. You guys are amazing, would have loved to have had friends like you, who obviously love gardening and flora as much as I do, or to have been able to use some of your wonderful ideas in my garden (some of which I am going to attempt anyway). Have a Wonderful Spring!

    spring means new beginnings, I always buy bird houses ,seed, and have so many shopping trips for garden supplies. My mother was always a Gardner and I grew up learning to make my surroundings in our yard kind to nature. I love this Facebook page. My life and recovery was so hard to overcome. each Spring I realized how blessed I am to survive and see the New blooms of another year. growing a garden heals your mind and body and offers a purpose for your hard work and rewards you every time.

    Spring and Fall are subtle seasons in Central Florida. I love the changing flow of songs of the migrating birds. I love the calls of the rainy season-breeding frogs and toads. I love planting the warm season crops and the appearance of so many new plants at stores. I love knowing that soon I can leave my doors and windows open at night. I love the return of the hummingbirds, putting out the feeders, and watching them as I have a snack and a rest from yard and garden work. I love seeing the changing procession of flowering native plants in the forest and along the roadsides., and how they take off after a day of showers. I love to see the different hickory trees’ bud burst, each one an individual in timing, some earlier risking a late frost, others more cautious, later. I love the breezy days when the warm and cold air masses push and shove for dominance and the showers that often result in this usually dry season here. Finally, I love the incremental lengthening of the daylight hours and the return of the sun’s apparent arc to more directly overhead. Yeah, I love Spring.

    Spring touches my child with autism in a place that I – nor her teachers can never reach. It is a little room in her heart where she plants the seeds of hope and then watches them grow, knowing that the world is open before her. Just as the low of the winter gives way to the tide of new-found sunshine freedom, I sit and watch in awe as a gentle smile curves upward on her face filled with joy. The discovery of new seedlings emerge from the earth and suddenly all is well on our little Farm Kingdom. And I know she knows – that just as a seed can grow, despite all obstacles, she can too. Every day in every way. This is the miracle of our everlasting spring. 🙂

    Springtime in Texas means it’s time for wildflowers here in the Hill Country. Time to take long country drives and get some great pictures of Blue Bonnets, Indian Paintbrushes, etc…

    I love the fresh start and new beginnings. The something that grows because of labor and hard work from a pile of beloved dirt.

    I love the lessons that gardening teaches my students about the fruits of their labors.

    Spring = Renewal. I love the freshness of the air, the colors of the plants that are waking up from a long winter’s nap. I love getting my hands (and feet – flip flop wearer) dirty while cleaning and planting.

    What I Love about Spring?…… I love that the days are longer, filled with sunshine, I love that it is a rebirth of Nature with all it’s baby birds and animals, It is like someone cast a magic wand over the white snow making all flowers, trees, come to life! But most of all I Love Spring and being able to see it through the eyes of my Daughter who is only 4 years old and seeing the wonder in her eyes that itself is so magical!

    I love how the rich aroma of soil becomes my spring perfume.
    I love seeing actual pieces of dirt rush down the drain carried by water tinged with brown.
    I love the ache in my muscles at the end of a long garden day.
    I love reconnecting with the sites and sound of the real, outdoor world after tedious short, dark, cold days.
    I especially love discovering the secret hideouts of unpredicted bulbs in my new yard. And there are a lot!

    The longer hours of sunlight are always welcome after the Winter darkness. The signs of Spring that make me look forward to Spring are birds gathering their nesting materials, the bird songs in the quiet & stillness of the morning hours, the flowering trees and the scent of sidewalks after a fresh Spring rain. Spring is my favorite season for all these reasons!

    I enjoy getting completely involved with gardening. Cleaning up the flower beds and rediscovering my plantings. Volunteers make me wonder if I planted it there or not.
    The smells, the dirt, the digging and planting are all wonderful. Everyday there is something to discover.

    I live in Newfoundland Canada so our spring is still a couple months away!! But spring is my favorite time of year, I just love watching to earth wake after a long winter, the small sprouts poking their way through the ground, the hint of green on the trees and shrubs. There is so much exception of whats to come.

    Hope blooms eternal with the arrival of spring. Having recently been laid off from my job, and faced with the prospect of job hunting at my age, spring reminds me to lift my face up to the sun, to bend down on my knees and sink my hands into the rich earth, and to coax forth new life from my plants. It gives me renewed vigor, and optimism. It helps me realize that I am already blessed…

    When I’m cleaning up in the fall, I really start disliking all the work and the garden is so sad. Then, lo and behold, here comes spring – all the promises and new life and happiness, from the worms in the soil to the birds chirping full scale! But, my favorite thing? To get my hands in the dirt and play! Nothing like redoing the soil and planting more flowers and veggies and. . . and . . . and . ..

    I love being able to take all of my kids outside. Let them run and play in the fresh air. Being able to dig and play in the dirt. Knowing that planting a garden will provide food later. Seeing all the beautiful colors coming back to life.
