Salad Days & Dressings

IMG_0418

We had a smashing spring day in the sunshine at the Children’s Museum this weekend and I got the blessing of feeding many folks my garden greens.  We talked gardening, making potting soil and building wooden flats and got a few young gardeners started sprouting their first sunflower seeds!!  Nothing quite like that first spring day where it feels like the whole town is out to play.  It was truly nostalgic for me, as about eight years ago I ran the garden there and it is actually where I meet my husband for the first time.  Now we have a little one of our own to bring to play, mingling with our sprouting community of little ones frolicking beneath the very beings my young hands planted so long ago.   Feeling so lucky to have such a great crew to hang with and such a beautiful place to raise our babies up in.  Thanks to the Arts of Nature for providing such a splendid community gathering, Griet, such a delight to see yo manifest your visions.
