I Forget Every Year

Gardening is, for me, restful, peaceful and restorative. At least until it gets too miserably hot and the garden is covered in weeds, that is.

Gardening with children, on the other hand, is one long prayer for patience, interspersed with shouts of "No!" "Not yet!" and "Don't touch that!"


But my "garden" for the year is planted.
