Waiting

Drizzle today. Just perfect for setting out pansies and moving those struggling summer perennials to a hopefully better spot. Soon winters sleep will settle in, or so we would think. During these next 14 to 16 weeks, we’re talking West Georgia here, miracles happen in the soil. I can’t explain it. I just witness it every year. Plant it in the fall and look forward to the spring transformation! It brings hope to me over the winter months when the sun is low in the south and the light is dim. Watching and waiting for the first sprouts and buds of spring bring a calm assurance to me. It’s in the dirt. I’ve done all that I can do. God it’s in your hands. Such is life at times. When the winter winds blow and snow piles high and ice holds fast its grip something miraculous is already happening just beneath my feet!

1 Corinthians 15:36 (Amplified Bible)

36You foolish man! Every time you plant seed, you sow something that does not come to life [germinating, springing up, and growing] unless it dies first

    My flowers are long gone and only a memory. I could still have some autumn stuff life the flowering kale but the deer don\’t bother my stuff all summer but do come to the yard in fall and they love the flowering cabbage and kale. Too bad because they can hang in there for a long time here. Take Care and Have a great weekend.. Carrie
