Even More Pictures of Spring

I don’t wander very far from home, most days, and yet I always find something that inspires me and fills me with wonder. I’m grateful for all the beauty that I’ve soaked in this spring. I’m trying to use it to stoke my own internal creativity and patience.


Graceful catkins decorate this tree, which is the last one to leaf out in my backyard. I wish I knew what it is.

"Blue Girl"

I forget whether this is a “Sterling Silver” or “Blue Girl” rose, but man, it smells sweet! It’s silly that I don’t remember, since I placed it there myself!

Waldorf School Farm Flowers

Wildflowers we found at Sacramento Waldorf School farm, when Ian, Asher, and I went looking for Lucas.

Useful and Beautiful

A rainbow of wheelbarrows at the SWS farm. They just looked so useful and beautiful at the same time.

Mint and Parsley

Mint returning in my food garden plot, next to my parsley. I was told I’d regret planting mint directly in the ground instead of in a pot, but the truth is I am happy to see it coming up. Lucas frequently goes nibbling his way through the garden plot and enjoys making all sorts of mint soups and drinks.

    Beautiful spring pics! What a great garden space. Is it for the students or open to the larger public?

    Two of the middle photos (wildflowers and wheelbarrows) are from the school farm, which is for the students and their families. Produce from the farm is tended by students and sold to the school families. Every grade takes gardening classes and the fourth graders take on responsibilities of caring for the animals. I’m so happy that my son gets to see where food comes from in this way. The other three pictures are of my yard.
