Peas and early greens from saved seeds* are beginning to sprout. Native bees are busy, salamanders are squiggling under every rock I lift. It’s incredibly hard to resist being in the garden all day everyday taking advantage of the cool, bright days before the heat, humidity and mosquitos shoo me away.
Yesterday tiny epimedium leaves and tulips buds appeared like magic, not there in the morning, there in the afternoon. A blooming epidemic is spreading.
Ideas are emerging too. Things are taking shape and coming into focus: ideas to experiment with, leaps calling to be taken, risks asking to be made.

*Seed Saver's Exchange is a great place to learn about heirloom seeds. I also like Baker Creek for heirloom seeds. Cultivate native plants in your garden to create habitat friendly to bees, butterflies, birds and amphibians, and remove invasive, non-native species.
