Spring has been so wonderful these last few weeks, with the daffodils and the tulips blooming, and the promise of more to come in the next several months.   I’ve been noticing how much everyone is caretaking their little baby plants, and it’s really lovely.

This weekend, we planted flowers and some lettuce and herbs on our porch, Now, every morning and evening, we go out and spend some time with our plants.  Yesterday, a friend came over and brought her little seedlings with her.  She’s going away for a week and doesn’t want them to die in the interim.  So we will be babysitting.   Over the weekend, we went to a 5-year-old’s birthday party, and he proudly showed us the tulips that he’d planted in the front yard.   

And finally, the orchid at the yoga studio bloomed!!!  I’ve been waiting for weeks as I’ve watched the buds develop. 

Dave, the studio owner, is such a great caretaker of the studio and the plants.    Isn’t it beautiful?

May we take care of each other just as tenderly as we do these springtime plants!
