I'm always happy to hear of schools that are growing some veggies. It is so easy to give kids the confidence that they can grow a few beans and tomatoes, and perhaps at some point grow a sizable garden. I was blessed to have a mother who gardened. She didn't have a big garden or even a very successful one (she had to deal with very poor soil), but I felt gardening was something anybody could do - and so it is.
And as to the tomatoes in the photo, they not only look great, they taste great, too.

I am starting another blog called My Morning Moment. I am hoping to do a short daily post based on a passage of the Bible. The posts will look at a particular theme over a period of time and then go on to another topic. The first theme is fear. I'm just jumping in where I am at and hopefully some people will feel they can connect there as well. It's at www.mymorningmoment.blogspot.ca

In 2013 and 2014, we visited London and spent considerable time in the area near the Parliament buildings and Westminster Abbey.

But flowers are still delightful...
We are again having a cold snap so it is still feeling very wintery. These primula are from last spring.
Since we still have snow, the perennials won't be bothered by the cold, and probably a few weeks from now, the crocus and snowdrops will be blooming. The seasons change very quickly some years.
I'm hoping this cold will also knock back the ticks which have been more numerous the past few years. We have Lyme disease in our area so ticks are a concern for people and pets.
My cherry tomatoes have sprouted. I used a plastic clam-shell to make a mini greenhouse and that helped the seeds to sprout.

I'd like to thank Dee at a Rosy View for sharing all her wonderful rose photos. It's always a treat to see the roses in my blog reading list. She has been assembling an amazing collection of rose pictures and it's always cheering to see them all.

He talked about a lot of things so it is pretty hard to summarize it in a few words, but he has a really good understanding of how societies work . He is a social psychologist and has a lot of insight into our current society. I highly recommend the video. It's almost two hours long but well worth the time spent watching it. If you want you can speed it up to 1 1/2 times normal speed , you get through it faster . I wasn't able to give a direct link to it but I really hope that you will go to his channel and watch this video and others that he has made.
March is giving us typical weather: warm and rainy followed by cold and dry.
