I’ve Sown The Seeds Of Love


I sowed the seeds of love
I sowed them in the spring
I gathered them up at sunrise
When the small birds so sweetly sing.

~Charlotte Slater ‘10


I have gifted you with the seeds of promise.  This is just a little reminder that this world is full of cycles.  Just as the ebb and flow the moon demands, we will thrive, suffer and be reborn over and over.  Plant these seeds for me and watch them grow- look at them every day and be reminded of my love for you.



In the late spring plant the Hyacinth Beans in a large pot full of fresh dirt.  Push the beans in the dirt till they are covered and put in the sun. Water regularly.  This vine will require an arbor to support it. I will give you the most beautiful green heart shaped leaves with veins and stems the color of eggplant.  Towards late summer the sweet smelling pink orchid-like flowers will appear, followed by peapods, vivid purple and glossy. As the vine dies back the pods will shrivel and go brown.  This is the time to harvest your beans and let them dry out. Place them in a baggie for next year, and share some love with your friends.

About the Author

From Review: "Charlotte Von Woffle Greer is an artist in the truest sense of the word. Tormented, embattled, strong, fearless and fearful. Curious, and full of wonder yet jaded and defeated at times. An artist shares what they feel. A true and brave artist shares what they feel completely as Charlotte does, in these pages." -Erik Johnson
