Seasons of Life
Garden Reports and Rejoicing – March 5
I noticed that the first crocus are in bloom today. They are always a welcome sight but especially so today. My mother-in-law, Maria Fornari, died yesterday so we are feeling all the grief and poignancy that such a loss brings. Gardeners, of course, are well schooled in the circle of life. Not that this makes loss any easier, but we’re certainly familiar with embracing birth, growth, decline and death.
Maria, who was “Misa” to her family and friends, was a passionate woman who lived a rich, full life filled with all of the challenges and blessings that this world presents and then some.
