I LOVE SPRING and the changes that come with it...
I love getting down and dirty in my garden, when my strength allows,
pulling out weeds and prettying things up...
I love anticipating how I'll move things around for a bit more enjoyment...
I love seeing the results of hard labour, when things are growing and blooming
as they were meant to.
The sad part though is ... when you think all is lovely ..
but then you get a closer look and see the weeds...UGLY weeds!
In order to save a remnant I'll have to uproot much of this plant!
I found them elsewhere too,
creeping in between every nook & cranny,
some safely tucked under rocks ...
some posing as part of a plant (the nerve!).
Some were easy to control - others required some major digging.
It's like they sprang up overnight, and yet, I know
that's not how it happens!
Life's a little like that isn't it...
The 'weeds' can come in oh so subtly... and, given the chance to flourish,
they'll choke out the beauty that God intended to be there.
We need to be constantly keeping things in check.
I know what I'm doing today... see you outside!
That is, after I spend a little time with my gardener :)
