Earlier this spring, as my yard and garden beckoned,
and my series of projects began,
I started working hard on my yard.
I will forever refer to it as the
Smiling Spring of 2013.
It was the great contradiction in terms:
smiling in between ouches and rose bush scratches,
smiling while digging and hoeing and planting and watering and dragging hoses and
grabbing my aching back and wondering,
‘if I holler loud enough, will someone come pull me out of the back aching frozen position I am in at
the foot of my tomato beds?’
