March 1st to me always means one thing: the month during which outside of Iran Norouz takes place. For those of us who live in Southern California, or other places with similar climate, we don’t get to see much of the changing of seasons. However, there are subtle little signs here and there . In my case some time around mid January my garden begins to come to life. My spring flowers begin to sprout out of the ground and by mid February my garden is in full bloom.
I can’t tell you how happy this new development in my garden makes me because I am absolutely a horrible gardener. I have all the best intensions but keeping plants alive is not exactly one of my strongest skills. Nevertheless, it’s exciting to see all these flowers that I planted years ago come back and greet us with their beauty every late winter.
