My Garden this Spring

I’ve been in my garden pulling weeds.  It’s such a big job.

I’ve tried to set manageable goals, this bed today, this bed tomorrow.

I have lots of big garden beds and some of the weeds, I think, are bigger than me.

But despite that, I’ve decided there’s one thing I really enjoy about weeding.

It’s certainly not the sore muscles in my back when I’m done.

I realized that I just can’t properly enjoy the beauty of all the little things in my garden- the buzzing bees, the small blooming things, new little plants coming out of the earth, the smells of lilac, bridal wreath, and Spring Snow crabapples in bloom…

until I’m out in my garden, on my hands and knees, hard at work.

    Wow, Calli, I’m not much of a gardener, but you made weeding sound fun! :)

    Thanks for the reminder! I was out for hours yesterday and today I’m heading for another section. By the time I’m done with everything it’ll be time to plant my veggies, YAY, that my kids and I started in pots about 6 weeks ago.

  • What a clever post. Someday, I hope to live in a house with a yard big enough for a garden!

    Beautiful garden plants you have!
    I too have spent hours and hours weeding a 5 year neglected yard. But I can say it looks sooooo much better and am happy to enjoy weed free beds(at least for awhile)
