The wind blew our recent storm away and I woke to a sparkling blue morning today. So back to my favorite garden I went. It really feels like Spring there now and I was overwhelmed by the amount of activity and growth that only increases every time I’m there lately. After some wandering, stunned by all that was blooming and buzzing, it was the old fig tree that caught my attention. The fig, putting out leaves and fruit simultaneously, is high in the northeast corner of the garden and the view there is spectacular. The bench beneath the fig tree is one of my favorite places to draw. I’ll visit here again and again as the season progresses, recording the constant changes. Today is just the beginning.
