Planting Seeds with Joy and Awe

“The very act of planting a seed in the earth has in it to me something beautiful. I always do it with a joy that is largely mixed with awe.”

— Celia Thaxter, An Island Garden, 1894

I so agree, only adding a blessing too for that little seed consciousness to know I care about it.

This quote was on the back of an empty seed packet for Love-in-a-Mist ‘Miss Jekyll Blue’ flowers that I got in 2005. I have a tiny spot where this flower struggles to reseed each year, under the shade of the black eyed susans which have run rampant through my backyard garden. Need to go out in April to see if any more of these Love-in-a-Mist’s have survived another year. Don’t you just love that name for a flower? Makes me think of English Romance movies filmed on a British moor — probably a Jane Austen film… or, if I’m in a different mood, a sappy Irish Spring soap commercial. I’ll go with the Jane Austen mood tonight, for now.
