Spring in Abundance

Early Morning reveals a carpet of petals and the blooms still in stunning glory.The Laughing Labyrinth is fairly bursting with energy and life.  Too early, may get frosted out, but the vibrancy of it all is reassuring and life will go on in spite of setbacks.

Jenny’s Pulmonaria is especially sweet to see.  Nancy and Bruce’s asters are tucked into wide open spaces.  Wendee and Les’ shrubs leafed out.  A few early emerging lilies from Kramer’s Flower Farm coming up in the middle of the path are settled in new locales where they will grow abundantly.

First Bench is where it needs to be and for a reason.  Pilgrims can by pass it.  Or if they sit, they simply need to look around and follow the path – take into account where they came from and where they are going.  And, should they back track, just re-trace their steps and follow around by the bricks on to the center.  Many Pilgrims rest here, contemplating their journey, admiring the structure of the tree, and listening to the chickadees amidst the branches.

The entry is fragrant with cocoa bean shells – and so are my hands from spreading them.
