Planting Something Today


On this sunny Wednesday morning, let’s snap an image or two to inspire everyone to plant something today. How is this different than any other morning? Well, it is official - May 15th is designated as ‘Plant Something’ Day.

As Wendell Berry reminds us, “Nobody can discover the world for somebody else. Only when we discover it for ourselves does it become common ground and a common bond and we cease to be alone.” Setting something in the ground that offers this stunning cascade of blossoms, well, to me it’s worth it. What are your thoughts? 

So before we depart to plant something (a pot of herbs or punchy annuals in a window box), let’s allow Wendell Berry to share one more thought. "A tree forms itself in answer to its place and the light. Explain it how you will, the only thing explainable will be your explanation.”

So make it officially your own ‘Plant Something’ Day! Even just to plant some future seeds.
