Wandering Wednesday

Here I stand in the garden, my tender sprout and I. We say "hello" to the pretty penstemon flowers. We sniff bits of thyme & rosemary (destined for the soup pot tonight...)

I show him the tomato plants, the zucchini, the pumpkins and cucumbers. I point out the strawberries, the sprouting nasturtiums, the climbing bean vines and twining morning glory.

This summer he is in my arms. Next summer he will be taking his first steps on his own two feet. This summer, he is the newest sprout in the garden, newer than the sprouts of sweet basil and lemon balm. Next summer he will share of the fruit of this garden. He will share the first strawberries with his brother, taste his first green cucumber, his first ripe tomato...
