Remembering Spring

Although these pictures were taken in the Fall, it helps me to remember what the garden looked like before being hit by the recent frosts. I am thankful that it still brings me joy and a sense of wonderment that the lemon blossom becomes a lemon, or that we have been able to harvest arugula, kale, chard, and lettuce that grew from seeds that I held in my hands only a few months ago! Maybe it is my poor memory that allows me to enjoy gardening so much, but at this time of year when the landscape is so bleak, it is easy for me to forget the flowers of Spring.
