A garden day

Spring is good for the soul.  Digging in the garden helps me to breathe deep.  After I tilled up the potato patch today, I stepped back, faithful shovel in hand, and looking at the fresh black dirt.... I just felt a sense of release.  Like a long, slow, deep breath.

 It has been such a cold spring here.  Days in the garden have been few and far between.  But today we spent all day outside digging in the dirt!  Today the sun was shining warmth and goodwill on us and the flowers opened their petals in thanks!
