I love Spring, new life creeping out of the soil and at other spots absolutely exploding in growth. But with that new growth it always seems like the weeds have an equal opportunity to thrive.
So today was my day to dig in the dirt and separate the weeds from the new growth - making sure that the weeds weren't getting in the way of those plants soaking in the sun. I discovered fledging sprouts from a perennial long forgotten through the Winter months. A weed was overwhelming it and little sun could reach its few little leaves.
I think this might well be the story of me. Weeding my personal garden of "stuff" that's getting in the way of new growth.
My garden is still more promise than fulfillment, but the weeds are gone. Plants I 'loved on' last year are thriving, others appear to be struggling to make it. Seriously, gardening in Colorado is a challenge for the hardiest gardener.
With every weed pulled is the possibility of beauty in its place.
