While planting in my garden, I was listening to the plants. The sound of plants awakening is a lot like listening to a young, smiling child waking up. It is beautiful, happy, and full of promise.

While I always hope that new plants will be born from the seeds I put into the ground, this is not what they meant. Any time we plant seeds, of any kind, they are the promise of hope planted.
