My Mother – I’ll Keep Her

Have you ever had a conversation with your mother that was just profound?? My mother is 87+ years old and in good health. She of course has many opinions, ideas, and thoughts that she enjoys sharing with her friends and family.  (You can see her on a segment of Farmers’ Almanac TV.)   The conversation we recently had with each other dealt with spring.

As you know, spring weather is arriving at different times around the the US and Canada. Today in Maine, it is sunny and in the 40s. It is your typical picturesque New England day to be outdoors.

When my mother and I chatted, she said “you know I feel closer to God when I am in my garden.”  I, being less observant, and said “why.” Her reason is what spring is all about. She said that “when you are in the garden, every flower has it’s own beauty. Each petal has a different shape and coloration. At the same time, bees and other insects are carrying on with their business. Worms are working the soil.  Birds are flying around. Plus the sun has a role as do clouds and rain.” She reasons that there has to be a God for all of this to work in such close harmony. I never really gave a lot of thought to this idea, but the harmony in nature is an awe-inspiring experience if we take the time to think about it.

This spring as you start your garden, remember the beauty and order that is all about. Earth Day is April 22nd – make plans to be good to the earth.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
