garden glory

Today the weather was absolutely gorgeous. Warm, sunny, it definitely felt like spring. Outside without our jackets Steve and I worked in the vegetable garden. Clearing out all of the dead stuff, raking out the beds and getting them ready for this year's occupants. The boards around the raised beds still look good so I think we'll keep them for another year at least.

I'm so happy to be able to spend the time outside working in the yard. As I recently mentioned to a friend, I enjoy the solitude and the silence of working in the garden, communing with nature and enjoying the growing things. It is a necessary mental health thing when raising three teenage daughters. That and more than one shower.
