It always strikes me how a memory can trigger intense feelings. Childhood walks in the woods and working in my Aunt's garden, came flooding back to me this weekend, after a visit off Cape.
It makes me cognizant that spring is here and I feel hopeful! Our typical cool season weather here on this elbowed peninsula, allows us to proceed with our gardens, where others may be caught off-guard by the warm weather they suddenly have.
On the Cape we are the early birds and the second mouse. Getting out and gardening in April on Cape Cod can be an enlivening and chilly experience to say the least.
This is an opportunity to invite wellness into our life, to reconnect with nature after the winter months. As C.L. writes in this weeks Blog:
“putting these plants in the garden in early spring lifts our spirits and gets our bodies moving. We are finally out and about in the natural world and this alone is beneficial.”
Now is the time to plant cool weather vegetables and flowers. Kale, cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts and leafy greens; pansies, osteospermum, ranunculus, and primrose.
