the warm and lengthening days are fueling some amazing growth in the gardens---everything green and lush and abundant. birds and bees (honey bees and many native bees) and butterflies abound. i've found myself feeling overwhelmed (in a good way) on many occasions lately---i look at the gardens and i am amazed at how productive they have become in such a short time, my brain is on fire with so many ideas for incorporating new plants and new ways of growing---there don't seem to be any limitations to what can be done here and i'm excited by all the possibilities. sometimes it all seems to be happening so quickly and i just want to slow down and really experience everything. i'm learning a lot and having a lot of fun. it's definitely feeling like spring and i feel like a new bud ready to burst into leaf---it's powerful stuff.
