Sowing the Seeds of Love...


"High time we made a stand and shook up the views of the common man..."

These are the opening lyrics of the song by 80's band Tears for Fears. Ok I know that pinpoints my age and (yes I was probably drinking Stroh's from of a beer ball in college)...but that's another story.

As I hold and shake Quotidian's Blue Bonnet seeds(her swaggage),wanting to sow them immediately, I know it's not yet warm enough or sunny enough to give them a hopeful long lasting bloom when I transplant them to a sunny spot in my garden in 6 weeks time.

Sunny spots are less abundant than the 80% shade that comes with my manse.

Still I am prepping, to be ready, to start getting ready to sow these seeds of love.

Come to think of it, they were already sown in Caribbean waters some 10 days ago, but the anticipation of sowing new seeds, in new gardens, so that more seeds of love can be made, eases my now tension headache, my worries about strained relationships in my church and tears OF Fears of how we're going to pull off all we've got slated in the next 2 months.

Trusting that Grace will continue to abound...

I too am itching to get out to the garden. I was at the grocery store and they were selling seeds. I smiled.

Hi Grace, I don't manage the blogs that arer "accepted" into the ring, I only introduce them once accepted. If you have sent in your request to be accepted then I am sure you will hear back from some one soon...also, I send an email to the ring host and inquire on your behalf.

Wow, I was actually doing the same thing with the seeds today. I have bit more sun here though.

Holding you up, sistah!

I think I am too old to really appreciate Tears for Fears, sigh... But, I appreciate the words and the seeds. You are daily in my thoughts and prayers.

Sorry to be so late reading your blog!

Do wait until fall to try the seeds and put them in a sandy soil with good drainage. Hopefully they WILL bloom "up north".

So enjoyed being with you...
