Spring & Wellbeing

I started this post several days ago, and just got distracted... but the intention was to celebrate Spring and Wellbeing.  I was so proud of this harvest recently, I found myself returning to the photo just to check it.... yep all of this came out of my garden.... chuffed!

This spring my garden is flourishing, which is nice because the past few years its been a struggle.  This Spring, I too have been flourishing after a long period of hip pain (since 2015). But  since my hip replacement I've bounced back, as my garden has....

I see my vegetables as signals of wellbring in my garden & myself.. 

This magnolia is near my flat in the city, and it too, speaks to me of spring, new life & energy.. Next week, I am off to Nepal for my 2017 adventure, trecking in the Annapurna Ranges!! 
So, here's to Spring 🍾🍹
I love this poem of an Australian Spring..

Spring is the magical time
When the rainbow lorikeets hum and the honey suckles Blossom,
When I actively bounce down the sand dunes
And onto the pea green grass,
The waratahs and the wattles bloom,
And my heart opens to the riot of spring.
I love this time when everything comes to life,
Nature triumphs in the trees, swaying freely in the wind,
Stealing my train of thought
And making my imagination run wild.
I am inspired by this heavenly kingdom,
The tranquillity of dew droplets falling,
Slowly
The mastery of the rain.
I feel connected.
Tree sap trickles down the bark of native gum trees
I examine this , calmly, curiously.
Sometimes the wind whispers to me at dusk
Giving me confidence within my body
I promise
I will always make the most of springtime.

Happy to hear you are feeling better. Congratulations to the harvest. Looks great and will taste wonderful. Nothing better than your own, fresh vegetables.
