From Waist Height and Wondering 11

Do you want to see a miracle?

Just watch a pea grow. It begins with a sweet-pea-like flower and when the bloom wilts you see the end of a petit pois poking out.

The pea emerges bit by bit until one morning there it is.

Suddenly whole.

All fresh and translucently, greenly beautiful. You can eat it then, delicate and sweet. Or let the peas grow fat inside and have the joy of podding them later.

Spring is coming…
