No one can tell me Autumn is just about endings, unless you believe that in every ending, there is a beginning. Gardeners and people of deep faith know this. Maybe they are one in the same. I know my hands digging in rich dirt and my heart rejoicing over tender green shoots is for me a spiritual exchange.
Dare I be so bold to name this experience, “Co-creating.” Even though I have heard my husband pronounce confidently from the pulpit, “We are all co-creators with God.”
Whatever it is, it nourishes my soul beyond words and I am overjoyed to be planting this Autumn, hoping through Winter and envisioning next Spring’s glory.

Plans are being made now for me to teach techniques used to create All About Iris Series, Spring 2015 at Tri-County Community College, Murphy, NC.
Now, to tell Rob his other birthday gift was 200 Daffodil bulbs :)
