Energetic and filled with wonder. The older one wanting to climb trees and explore the different textures of moss growing on the boulders and ponder what imaginary life lives under the green lichen. The younger one is just getting her legs under her and will soon be joining her sister as they explore the natural treasures just out their front door. Special rocks, dandelions, worms and dirt are all part of the mix that makes their world special.
I want to join in their utter glee of being with the wind, in the rain and digging in the dirt. We have mighty plans for starting our garden in cardboard egg crates and transplanting them once the fear of frost has passed. Tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, carrots, Brussels sprouts and snap peas are just a few to mention. I think the veggies that grow within reach and can be plucked off the vine and plopped in the mouth are the best for teaching how planting seeds are so important in life.
As we all enjoy this long awaited spring, we hope that you, too, will get out and explore. Maybe not in the dirt planting seedlings, but headed out to see a new band or try out a new dish at one of our favorite local restaurants. This place is literally crawling with remarkable things to do, explore, and experience.
Enjoy the delights inside these pages and let us hear from you!
