Time to be bewitched, out in the sticks, it's zero hour and the etching is getting some spunk!. The new narrative is 'The Rites of Spring'- No more spurious hopes and starts!, I know from my antecedents and generics that saunter with me that the shameless 'rave-up'! the great escape , the holy grail, the nine and a half month pageantry that is creation is here ! I'm about to get some lifeblood along with my troupe.
The flora and fauna are mother earths abstract expressionists, in come Pollock,De Kooning and Rothko- sparking without a stumbling block.The 'rough sketch' becomes viscous and everything desired.
The soundtrack has changed with new amplification, the Woodpecker drills out his crazy beat 'pinging his ruler on the edge of a desk', This in turn is a call to the other birds, the blue tit's become castle-builders and more intrepid,they think i'm a GOBSHITE' as they commute from tree to tree, 'Look at him all secular and slovenly'! Birds can be so patronizing, but they have a good point.
You realy can get stoned on the SAPience and 'STING', this maybe a bit thrifty in February but it's what this represents that counts.
I am under the auspices of nature and it will take me many more years to get clued-up to her audit, and at this time she primes and revives me for the charge. Most important is to be a law-breaker to your books and clientele, but honourable to creation, as patronage WITH, and prompts FROM, are fruitfull and rhythmical, Also as a violater you can watch, learn and think!.(the only master gardener i know is a worm) and as his understudy the rudiments for now are raw and solid,(compost and cutting) the hard work obstructs the humbug in this opening and lynchpin of the season,
All i can say is get a job outside !,Indoor jobs are for politico's,lawyers and yobs,and the avant-gardening life is good for everyone! Give your primeval alter ego a titivate in the glorification of spring. THE HOLY GRAIL!!!!

Do you want to grow your own House Plants, Flowers, Trees and Shrubs for FREE....Grow them to landscape your yard, grow them for fun and for profit....Growing small plants in your backyard is one of the most rewarding things you will ever do in your life. Not to mention the money you can make. Getting started in this home based business is really easy. All you have to do is start rooting cuttings of your favorite plants (I'll show you how to do that), and you are off and running. Any time you have a few extra minutes just stick a few cuttings. Before you know it you will have thousands of plants valued at several thousand dollars.
