April should be the REAL New Year! For me it’s a month of promise where the energy of the earth is unavoidable to witness. Despite the uncertainties of Winter, April brings with it urges to get up off the couch and contribute to new beginnings. Feelings of hope, happiness and anticipation that come with planting a cutting patch have been irresistible and the springtime flowers that are already blooming recklessly are playing the messenger….I actually forgot about the forget me not seeds I scattered in the fall and when I saw them blooming I felt like they were screaming out ‘remember me!’. Every single morning I witness new arrivals. Everything seems to have grown since yesterday! Spring just can not be restrained. And neither can I. So begins my second year of growing flowers to cut and fill our house with their beauty.
