Love in all it’s colors


Is there anyone who does not appreciate the beauty of a field of flowers or the cool shade of a tree? I find a special soothing calm when I tend my garden beds. The miraculous process of new green life from tiny seeds never fails to inspire awe. Sure, I know all about the scientific mechanics of the process, the nifty little setup of chlorophyll to trap photons, excite electrons, and then send that energy into photosynthesis. Impressive, yes, but still I never tire of watching for those first shoots of daffodils and hyacinths in the spring, the paper-whites and tulips that follow and the array of other perennials that slowly wake. The butterflies start visiting and the birds sing for mates. The whole spring season, despite awakening my allergies, makes my soul sing.
