Summary of This Spring

06/01/2023 52-88F Sunny

Since mid-March till mid-May, I had planted more than twenty shrubs and trees, about two hundred fifty square feet of vegetables and herbs, and hundreds of bulbs and perennials. It was a very busy, tough Spring, yet the best one I ever had. Doing nothing but gardening, turning all my sweat into raindrops. What's the meaning of life? Watching a plant growing, like expecting all the other beautiful things to happen in our lives. Not every dream can come true, but other than working hard and quietly on it, what else can we do?

My jasmines, gardenia are going to bloom soon; my two meyer lemon trees reward me thirty four baby lemons, and now are forming another round of buds; I have harvested my crop of this year (nine cherries) from my young cherry tree; and my strawberries, bok choys, spinach taste heavenly. There are so many things I am looking forward to. I am moving on, one way or the other.
