The allotment: contemplative
Last weekend when I was working on the allotment I was thinking about how people come into and go out of our lives all the time. Often when we don't expect it. The change can be hard to adjust to. So many events in our lives are unexpected and disruptive as well. I love that I can rely on the fact that spring will always come around. Even when it is hard to imagine on the coldest, darkest days. I don't know how my plants will grow this year, even with the best plans and preparation. But I do know that one day I will go up to the allotment and the strawberries will be blossoming white, the lizards will be scuttling around and the sun will be hot and glorious. It's a comfort to have this to rely on.
