Healthy Mindset – Days 47 – 49
This is my favourite time of the year, and I’m happy that despite the uncertainty that still surrounds us, the one thing we can count on is that Spring will come. (Although as I type this, it sure doesn’t feel like a warm Spring day).

Getting outside, digging your hands in the soil and getting dirt under your fingernails will always make you feel better. Like so many others, I’m going to try growing a few vegetables this year. Not a full-blown garden, but instead of mostly all flowers in my containers, I’m planting a couple of different kinds lettuce and cucumbers, peppers, various herbs, and of course, tomatoes! Why do they taste so much better than store-bought tomatoes?? I had a problem last year with crows picking at my tomato crop, and since I’m going to buy a few more plants than I normally do, I’m going to have to rig up some kind of deterrent to keep them away. What’s your favourite veggie to eat straight from the garden?
Some colourful Spring pictures for a day that’s a bit too chilly for digging in the dirt (all taken in May from previous years, mostly around Regina – except for the poppies in Jardin du Luxembourg and the pansies in a restaurant window in Paris two years ago).
The first real day of spring is like the first time a boy holds your hand. A flood of skin-tingling warmth consumes you, and everything shines with a fresh, colorful glow, making you forget that anything as cold and harsh as winter ever existed.Richelle E. Goodrich
