I have been watering these 3 little pots of dirt for what seems like weeks on end. It's not easy to see in this photo but the basil, chives, and dill are finally poking through. The dill looks scrawny but it is nice to see new life. It is fun to see things growing when it is still so bitterly cold outside. It gives me great hope in a symbolic way, as I wait for news of new life from someone dear.
