Summer's 1st Tomatoes
"We are most alive in those moments when our
hearts are conscious of our treasures."
- Thornton Wilder
There is something so wholesome about taking time to select a perfect tiny tomato seedling at the nursery, and then softly turning the earth to plant that little sprig of green just outside your back door. The watering and anticipation becomes a kind and loving ritual, and you are joined there by curious birds, bees kissing pollen, and dipping dragon flies. And then one fine day it finally happens - the tiny tomato treasure you have been waiting and hoping for... and you become aware: your heart has joined in the sweet harvest of a simple summer pleasure...
What are your simple summer pleasures?
