Goodbye March

31 Mar

IMG_0019I don’t do much gardening anymore;
I only keep a box and
a few pots on my stoop.

But, like March,
the season of the flowering kale
has come to an end.

 

 

In its place comes April,
full of hope and new possibilities.

 

 

I have replaced the kale IMG_0020
with pansies for now.
Later, I’ll put my dahlia tubers in pots
and change up the pansies
for something that can take
the heat of summer.

And so, Spring Break ends,
this month of daily writing ends,
but the journey
around the sun
continues.

    You’ve inspired me, and I refer to your blog in my post today. Thanks for being someone with whom I turn-and-talk!

      Right back at you! I love thinking about the challenge as a turn & talk!

    Reading this slice on the heels of your prior one about allergies, I’m reminded how — as the world continues spinning — so many aspects in life have power both to hinder us and help us. (In this particular case, I’m looking at you, plants!) Your hopefulness in this slice and throughout your writing is an inspiration for which I’m grateful.

    Love the pansies on your stoop, these words “April, full of hope and new possibilities,” and the changing seasons.

    “Our journey around the sun…”. Occasionally paused while we remember and write…

    Yes, our “journey around the sun” does continue, doesn’t it? I like your reminder that things come to an end, but life keeps going, and there is always something to look forward to. Thanks for sharing. 🙂 ~JudyK

    You have inspired me with your photos and your enthusiastic planning. I have to get out there and replant something to replace the devastated Hostas our friendly neighborhood deer enjoyed eating. We are all journeying around the sun together.

    Here’s to endings and new beginnings. It has been an incredible month. Looking forward to your Tuesday posts.

    I like that your post reminds us that endings bring beginnings of new things!

    I feel sad about the March Challenge ending, but I’ve already got my next writing adventure lined up and ready to go – much like your flower pot. See you on Tuesdays!
