Let us begin…

Living...Laughing...Loving...in my garden 3 24 11 © 3/25/2011

Well, hello there! I am not certain where to begin with this blogging thing but as a wife, mother of two-legged and four-legged children, grandmother, daughter, sister, former educator, currently unemployed lasagna-gardening SOUTHERN female…I have a lot to think about and even more to say!!!

With spring warming things up a bit here in the South, I have donned my bib overalls…yes, I did say bib overalls (I know those of you who know me are laughing right now) and headed to the front lawn to start planting my veggies…and yes, I did say front lawn(check out the edibles around my lamppost in the picture). The time I spend with my fingers in the dirt allows me a direct connection to my Source and I find that thoughts and ideas flow to me like sweet tea sashaying over my tongue and down my throat on a hot summer day – deliciously fulfilling! To say that I feel compelled to share this knowledge is an understatement and since many of my friends want to see what is going on with my edible landscape, well, this just seems like the right thing to do.

I hope you will come sit a spell with me every now and again so we can ‘chat’…you just never know what the topic of the day might be.  Until next time…get outside, breathe some fresh air and get your hands dirty…

    Tess, you’re an incredible writer! I’m looking forward to your next post.

    Great writing Tess! It’s going to be like having a conversation with you – awesome!

    • Thanks, Becky! I have always found it much easier to write than converse…now if I can just figure out how this whole blogging thing really works so that it doesn’t take me ALL DAY to post what I have to say, life will be just grand(er)! 😉 I have a garden to play in after all….
