Welcome, Little Seedlings!


What a difference a week makes in the garden! It didn’t take long to go from one tiny sprout, (See With Love, From the Garden), to almost an entire tray of rapidly growing newborns. As usual, my happy little garden is a source of inspiration for my muse when it comes to photography and haiku poetry.

My little heart-shaped early bird has already tripled in size (the little guy on the right), while zucchini leaves are pushing their way to the surface. When I went to bed the night before, the zucchini baby in the front hadn’t even broken through the dirt, but when I came home from work the next day he was busy trying to break free of the seed casing. To catch this moment is my small miracle for the week!

The cocoon shatters
Leaves unfurl, ready to sing
Sun-kissed miracle

The beans are growing fast and reaching for the sun, while the sunflowers race to catch up!

Sunbeam catchers reach
Golden veins and thirsty stems
Life newly rooted

The garden rabbit came out of hiding to see what all the ruckus is about! Hey, there little bunny, leave those peas alone!
