Spring is your chance to BLOOM!

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” ~ Socrates

My husband  planted an amazing  Spring garden for us. I have been getting handfuls of gorgeous greens for our salads. We garden organically so you have to look for extra goodies that might come in on the lettuce, things like spiders, grasshoppers, ants etc. Yesterday I found a tightly spun caterpillar web on the underside of a crispy leaf of Butter crunch lettuce.I wish I would have taken a picture of it before I transferred it back to the garden. I will never interrupt the process it takes to become a butterfly. (I also don’t want to eat caterpillars, a little squishy for me!)

Each one of us is so tightly wound ,like that cocoon, or attached snugly to something. 

What are you hanging onto that is keeping you from being a butterfly?

Today is a great day to begin. Just like all of the birds, bugs, plants & animals in nature we need to get started today. We now have 31 days until Easter Sunday.  Have you started your Spring cleaning yet?

I am not talking about your closet or garage. Let’s clean your pantry and physical body. You are worth it!

My Meyer Lemon blossoms. The honey Bees are buzzing around raiding the pollen. I wish I could find their secret stash of honey!

I had so many thoughts today as I was watching the activity in my garden but the biggest one was that all of the creatures out there looked so light.

floating, flitting, soaring, gliding and dancing in the new growth. Leaping from stem to stem or flower to flower Such freedom in their movements. Can you feel it, that energy? I could and it encouraged me and empowered me to be my healthiest self.

This salad tasted just like Spring with the crisp lettuce, arugula, beets, pea shoots, basil, tarragon, chives heirloom carrots, Thumbalina bell peppers,blueberries& mango. I also crumbled some bacon on top for some crunch and salty goodness. A drizzle of California olive oil and Banyls vinegar finished it.
