The joyful responsibility of planting, tending, and harvesting my friend’s/neighbor’s raised beds was handed largely to me in the Spring. It was soooooo good to get back to the earth and the devic life of gardens and flower beds.
Growing food in the house over the winter included starting tomatoes and squashes. It was tremendous fun. The plant devas were chatty and happy; they filled my little home with their sparkle and bliss. But, boy, you let plants have freedom of root, wind, and sunshine, give them the water they need and a garden sounds like a well-tuned orchestra playing their heart’s content into the world. The birds, bees, and pollinators of all kinds hear and see the profuse harmony. They flock daily to the garden beds adding their voice, wings, hum and audible yum.
