Although this winter has been particularly tame (at least in the Northeast), that doesn’t mean the promise of spring is tasting any less sweet.

Most people associate spring with baseball or a top-to-bottom cleaning of the home, but some folks are most excited about getting back in their gardens.

Serious gardeners have already plotted out their seeds and crops, while the less industrious of us are simply hankering to taste the fresh bounty of the coming months.

To get us ALL in the mood for spring, check out this gorgeous, soft-lit tribute to the season from Tiger in a Jar – and it’s most delicious and relaxing pastime.

They describe the video as such:

While working in the garden recently, we were reminded of the energizing nature of working with our hands (our very dirty, soil covered hands). The process of furrowing, watering and weeding seems to mirror very well what we are trying to do with our lives. Out with the unnecessary and the distractions. Nurture and tend to what we find most important. Allowing this to become something tangible that we can give to others.

Lovely sentiment for a lovely video.

Have you already plotted out your garden? What are you growing this year?

THE FILMMAKERS: Tiger in A Jar by name has only been around for a little while, but Matt and Julie have been creating for years. We were married in 2009, and started running TIAJ full time at the beginning of 2011. We document life through film and pictures, and enjoy spending time in the kitchen obsessing over food.
