Plant Seeds

I am looking at seeds we have saved from our garden. Left to right - marigold, radish, summer savoury, and cilantro.

Whether you are planting seeds in the garden, or planting seeds of change in your life and community, prepare yourself for a bountiful harvest. Be a loving caretaker, and success is assured. It is the way in a creative universe that delights in both life, and change.

“Plant your tiny seeds and keep watering them every day. Soon, they’ll grow.” 

- Israelmore Ayivor

“Seeds have the power to preserve species, to enhance cultural as well as genetic diversity, to counter economic monopoly and to check the advance of conformity on all its many fronts.” 

- Michael Pollan

“Every morning has a unique story. There are always some seeds of possibilities waiting to sprout.” 

- Amit Ray

"Plant seeds of kindness, love and peace 
And your harvest will be abundant living.” 

- Sanjo Jendayi

And remember, today's ashes are tomorrow's fertilizer.


  1. I love seeing your saved seeds and am reminded of this beautiful quote:

    "Activism is my rent for living on the planet." -Alice Walker

    Keep saving and planting, my friends!

    1. Erin,

      We have to put the "act" in "activism". Planting a garden is one way to do that.

  2. What beauty in that carton! Planting seeds is an act of hope, belief and defiance.

    1. Marla,

      I am mad for seeds. Not just for what they can do for me, or what they can turn into on their own. They are amazingly beautiful things just as they are.

      The Universe is contained in every seed, all of which, are perfect. We could be that way. Seeds should be our role models. Grow. Create. Realize your true potential.
