A Weekend of Planting Joy

I've been doing a lot of stories at the newspaper over the past couple of weeks about spring gardening. I absolutely love it because all of the color lets me know that winter is far behind us now.

I probably just jinxed it and we'll have a foot of snow next week!

One of the landscaping experts I spoke to had a wonderful thought on the subject of plants. He said, "No matter what the economy, no matter what condition your life is in, art and plants will bring a smile to your face."

For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations. Isaiah 61:11

Make this a weekend of planting a little joy in the garden that is your own personal world. I pray you'll find a special way - either with flowers in the soil outside your door or in the hearts of the people you love.
