We gardeners are healthy, joyous, natural creatures. We are practical, patient, optimistic. We declare our optimism every year, every season, with every act of planting.

Carol Deppe, The Resilient Gardener: Food Production and Self-Reliance in Uncertain Times

Today’s the day: a sunshiny and warm one and—best of all—a gardening one.

I’m looking forward to spending a bit of time at the garden puttering and planning. Peas have been soaking overnight and they’re going in the ground today. I’ve got tomato plants that need repotting. And there are daffodils and other full-of-wonder things growing near my front door to photograph.

Simple happy.



I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
