The bounty is…well, bountiful!
Gardening is therapeutic, but it is also hard work.
When I step outside wielding scissors and
come back with this, however,
I know the back-breaking days were worth it!
I look at these photos, at the shapes and textures and vibrant colors,
and shake my head at the miracle
of it all.
My girls were away at camp, so I spent Monday and Tuesday in the office getting ready for the start of school. And somehow I'm excited about this, too. Not now! No, not now!
But in a few weeks it will be good to actually put on make-up and properly
dry my hair and pick out a cute outfit and go to school.
I have missed my students.
I have missed my colleagues.
But right now it's summer, and I'm not done playing in the dirt.
