Nature’s Crescendo

In music, a crescendo is defined as “a gradual increase, especially in the volume or intensity of sound in a passage.” Funny as we end this month of January, we sense nature’s crescendo gradually increasing in its intensity, preparing us for spring. With longer days, that natural light makes our garden hearts dance and tap our feet. Nature’s rhythmic patterns swell us with spring excitement. We feel the build-up; hints of winter passing fills the air.

Yes, we made it through January; the toughest month in a gardener’s calendar. We’ve reflected and collected our garden thoughts. We’re itching to set plans into movement. But not quite yet; there’s a build-up and we must patiently wait to hear the orchestra play till the end.  

It doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate - it is the last day of January. So here’s an Annie suggestion. If you want to keep in theme with music, listen to a favorite composition or song. You’ll find the right tune that puts you in the perfect mood. Yes, it is January 31st and there is much to celebrate. The build-up to spring is taking place.  But be patient; sit back and enjoy the music. Let nature’s crescendo lead the way.
