The arrival of Spring is a reminder that the Earth is alive. It is amazing that a simple seed or dried flower bulb can be interred and within a short time, it germinates and grows.
I found this garden tool while antique shopping. I used to collect Mid-Century period furniture and Murano glass but now I am drawn to older items that have acquired the patina of use. The well-worn handle of this rusted implement reminded me of an elegant bird’s head with a long beak.
