This past weekend my gardening season began in earnest,
I am better for it.
It keeps me honest.
”Wax on- wax off.”
As in simple, hard , physical work.
I was aided by fragrance everywhere.
My jasmine is blooming-
and my orange trees are blooming.
I wish this photo had a scratch and sniff feature
I do better when I work.
And yes, I sometimes work too hard,
and my muscles hurt,
and as a result I walk funny,
and my yard clothes get as dirty as a toddler’s,
but I have a smile on my face,
today for the first time this year,
I ran the water hose all over my face.
