In April

I'm learning

how to garden again.

While listening to one of my students

read his personal memoir draft


teaching experience quickly

reversed roles.


I was looking at 

a newly blossomed  bouquet

emerge on its own


I merely stood in the background.

In April

I'm learning once again


You can't force

a tiny seed to grow

in the soils of the growing field.

You feed it.

You allow it 

the space of light

then before you know it

rose petals 

fall from the sky.

Oh happy April sweet Anita. I am so happy to see April open up to all of us. This month is always the promise of warmth and more sunshine and life to start again. Our friendship has grown lovely from a small seed we both planted some time ago. I love that we nurture and take care of our friendship and keep it growing and thriving. Love you sweet friend.

All of your students are your seeds, and what a great gardener you are. I daresay, as good a gardener as photographer!

I saw that photo of the rain boots on your Instagram, and thought it was beautiful. You always get the nicest bouquets to work your magic, Anita. And I noticed that you found that chair along the way and painted it. You'll have to tell me about that. It's such a pretty soft color. I hope you get to do some gardening soon. I know how much you love it, and your garden is so enchanting. When we dig and plant and work in our gardens, we learn many things.

Happy April days to you, dear friend.

love, ~Sheri

… and the cat came back the very next day … smiles … Sadly no, friend Anita … instead of a video I see a black box … I just sent you a message on how I successfully post You Tube videos on my own blog … Hotmail address and all, but my message got blocked by Blogger for doing so. You can find my email address in my profile if you want to know how I do it. Sorry for imposing like this, friend Anita, but I thought I let you know. Much love, cat.

When you buy a new HP printer, you try to connect it using the user manual. The manual provided by the manufacturer may not be in detail. Hence, our technical experts have given simple instructions that guide you through the HP Printer setup and troubleshooting issues if any. We also offer free 123hp driver (Both Basic and Full-feature) to make your printer function efficiently. The navigation is too easy such that all instructions are available on one single page.
