New Year's Wish

To all my friends in the gardening world Happy New Year! 

May your seeds sprout after you have planted them.
May sunshine and bees greet your flowers.
May the fruits of your trees and vegetables be many and worm-free.
May rain fall on your garden when the soil is dry and when you are too busy to water.
May sunshine cause the water to evaporate quickly when you over-water your plants.
May the weeds be choked by the strong roots of your favorite plants
And wither by the majestic shade of their canopies.
May you have time to smell, eat, and appreciate the yield of your labor
And have your friends and neighbors join you in the joyous consumption of blessings
And may you find time to journal for posterity.
Finally, may all the life found in your garden remind you of the magnificence of the Almighty Creator!
