Brand new to our garden this year are a pair of cherry trees.

Stella (a red cherry) and Rainier (a golden cherry).

We’re not sure how they will fare in our garden, the weather can be pretty harsh here. The flowering cherry we’ve had for years is strong but the leaves look battered most of the time.

But we are hopeful they will flourish and grace us with loads of cherries (and that the birds will save us some).

It’s exciting when there is potential, when there is a dream of something.

The anticipation.

Last year a very dear friend of ours bought potential to my attention.

Before that it was just muddled in with everything else but mostly pulled back by all those things that pull you back, doubt, fear, self worth, etc.

But the more I think about it, the more important I think it is. We have a responsibility to ourselves to keep reaching for all that potential.

Make the most of our time.

It has inspired me to keep reaching, to keep learning, to be the best I can be.

Have you heard of a dream jar? My daughter found one on Pinterest the other day. Isn’t it a great idea! A jar full of your dreams and aspirations!

I believe, if you can dream it, you can make it happen. Dream, another word for potential?

How I wish I had created a dream jar when I was little, how fun to read now. No matter, I know those dreams formed a foundation of hope and a penchant to keep dreaming (reaching).

I hope my daughter is inspired by her find on Pinterest and creates a dream jar and time capsules her hopes and aspirations.

No harvest today, some strawberries almost ready but even yummier tomorrow 🌱

Have a wonderful day!
