It is planting time here in South Georgia. Tractors are the main vehicle on the road these days. Fields are full of workers putting in new tobacco plants, planting corn and cotton. It is a glorious site to see the fresh plowed earth. I want to kick my shoes off and go walk in the cool dark dirt. Spring is alive and kicking! Our pecan trees have budded. As you look down the rows of trees you can see a wisp of light green as the leaves begin their season of growth. Even in Spring there is still a harvest to collect. Local farmers are pulling up onions! Oh how I love a grilled hamburger with a slice of fresh-from-the-dirt sweet onion! Yum! To new beginings and endings...a blessing here in the South!
