The air was cool this morning, and I was starting to feel a gentle rain on my face, when I spied this tiny Forget-Me-Not growing in the front yard. I remember planting it last year after visiting my friend Sue, she dug it up from her garden, as a gift for mine. It was a good thing that I marked it with a stick or I may have overlooked this delicate perennial. I went to my compost bin and came back with a filled scoop of “black gold”. I gave the flower a little handful around the base of the plant, and with the texture still chunky, I was able to identify little bits of eggshell and pieces of avocado pits. This is one of my favorite things to do with my compost, give it back to the earth to nourish new growth. If you look closely to the left of the blue flowers, you can see the new blooms about to show themselves, amazing. I wonder what I will see tomorrow? I am celebrating... International Compost Awareness Week is May 3 through May 9, 2020.
