The sun is out, the glaciers are receding and I have proof of life after all of that snow! The gardens are slowly melting and and revealing their treasures (no sign of the veggie garden yet….). What else would I do but dig?!
Slowly receding snow banks force me to pace myself…which is good because I hate weeding…
The problem with not really knowing how to garden is that I don’t really know what I planted and what I should pull out…Oooops!
Hair cuts for the Goji berries , lavender and oregano!
Even my wee girl’s flowers came out for a coffee and some sunshine – the snow in the background makes me giggle as I sit in my short sleeves and rubber boots…
Big hands with happy, filthy fingernails, finally!!
Can’t wait for more life to pop!
“I don’t want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone’s garden. I want to be there with children’s sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.”
