Happy spring

March 20th marked the first day of spring this year.

I spent the weekend starting seeds, prepping beds, and generally waking things up from a long, cold winter. Saturday I enjoyed a solitary and meditative day of garden work at home. On Sunday I joined the community and worked at the Alleycat Acres Central District site.

Never mind the calendar though, below are two concrete signs of spring: chives and dirty hands...

 The chives came back and are even more delicious than I remember from years past. I can't wait for them to flower.

Dirty hands. I'll have dirt under my fingernails and dry cuticles until next winter, and that's okay.

Did you do anything to celebrate the transition into this new season?
