Easter Season – a time of renewal and new life. My spring garden is at its best. The afternoons are still cool enough for the violas, yet at the same time warm enough for the petunias and lobelias. A month ago I planted some nasturtium seeds, and now the young plants are blooming. I must enjoy them for a few precious weeks before the summer heat scorches them away. Today is my granddaughter’s birthday, and it is also the feast day of St. Catherine of Siena. I wish all the holy passion of the saint for my granddaughter in all that she does, now and forever. No matter what life brings her, I pray she will always find renewal and new life in the promise of spring and in the promise of the Resurrection.
