Jayme Loge here on this lovely Tuesday in April. I’m going to confess right off the top that spring has never been my favourite season. It’s wet, and windy and muddy and grey. But this year, with our record breaking, never ending winter I am craving spring like never before. Bring on the melt! Bring on the mud! Bring on the drab, dusty landscape! Bring on anything but snow for my eyes to see!
As a scrapbooker, I can make these wishes come true. I escaped to my scrapbook area and dug out some favourite spring photos. Although it is too soon yet for gardening, it is one of the rituals that I love about the season. I come from a long line of gardeners, and remember many a spring day planting and hoeing and planning with my extended family. My grandparents had the most astounding gardens and I am proud to say I learned from the best!
This picture of my daughter and my father warms my heart. She is learning from the hands of her grandparents, just as I once did. I am sure she is going through the whole range of emotions about time spent with fertile soil, just as I did. When we finally get out to plant this year, I doubt my now fourteen year old will look so engaged! But I hope she will arrive to adulthood with memories that bloomed in a garden, and her own desire to plant, tend and harvest.
