When you are raising anything – vegetables, fruits, trees, animals or children, you need to make sure that you have the right combination of things to grow your life-entities into mature, happy adults.
You need good soil (pasture, good parents), good fertilizer (healthy food), sunshine and plenty of water.
If you have all of these, you should end up with a healthy mature crop of whatever life-entity you are raising. If you don’t, more than likely you will end up with stunted adult life-entities, either in mind or body.
So, with all this knowledge, how did this happen? This lovely little violet is growing in my driveway … just a crack in the cement with very little of anything it needs except for sunshine and rain. How did it start and how is it surviving?
On another note, it is in the 70s today and there is very little breeze. We have birds all over the place! I hear mourning doves when I go out in the early morning. We heard a woodpecker but couldn’t see it today – it sounded like a Pileated because it was so loud and sounded like it was in the lane but it was out of sight! We saw some birds that looked like Red bellied Woodpeckers or Northern Flickers but they moved too fast for even Norm to identify.
I love Spring and I am enjoying it a lot, going outside as much as I can and watching the gardens … soon, perhaps, we can actually work in them.

It’s a beautiful day today – you have a beautiful day!
