spring & secret gardens

Today being the first day of spring, it's time to get your garden on. Not necessarily planting one, although that's wonderful in it's own right, but finding your very own little go-to pocket of green in which to soak in the season. There's a public garden and bird sanctuary literally around the corner from where I live and a beautiful city park just a few blocks away. But it's especially nice to find a spot as near as a corner in the backyard, under a favorite tree. The qualifications aren't many. There should be petals of some sort, the kind that drift down in a breeze to land in your hair. Soft, flower-scented air, too. And birdsong.
