Easter Planting

Last Easter, my husband and I ended up spending most of the afternoon in the garden.  We didn’t plan it that way – it just happened to be a nice day and we seized the moment.  As I was working, smelling the rain-dampened lavender, I realized that this was a tradition we should continue with.  What better day to plant something than Easter Sunday?

I like planting on special occasions – it feels like a mini-ceremony to commemorate the day.  My wedding anniversary and birthday also happen to fall in the springtime, and even if I just put something in one pot, or sprinkle a few seeds into the ground, it gives me a few moments to meditate what’s really important about that event.

I would encourage you to do your own Easter planting this year.

Primroses are the first planting this spring.  in what once was a weedy spot in the garden.
