Fruits of Our Gardens

/, Nature, Spiritual Living/Fruits of Our Gardens


I planted some wildflower seeds earlier this year, seeds that were supposed to attract hummingbirds and songbirds.

Since I had just put a couple inches of soil down on top of old soil, I wasn’t sure what was going to come up.  I tilled, raked and scattered seed, hoping for the best.

After a few weeks, I hesitated pulling out what looked as if it were tall grass, not knowing what might be a plant and what might be a weed.

After another few weeks, I began to see some little flowers and more buds, but still was hesitant to pull what could be weeds.

The other day as it began to rain before a bike ride, I decided instead to pull the tall grass since I saw similar grass in some of remaining dirt I had not spread on my garden.

Patience paid off, as it always does when awaiting the fruits of our gardens.  Isn’t it nice to see the beauty created by Nature when we’re patient and allow things to be as they are meant to be?  Nice lesson for the rest of life, too!
