No emergencies at work and an almost sunny morning meant ESCAPE TO THE GARDEN!
This is a photo of several of my favorite gardening tools. The little hand spade is one
I found in my mother's tool shed after she passed away. It's made of some kind of
tough, hard metal that doesn't bend and holds an edge. I just can't find
things like that in stores anymore. I also love the plastic coated gloves
since, unlike cloth or leather, they work well even when they're wet and muddy.
The pruning shears are great for whacking at branches and sticks.
Gardening just makes me happy. Must be the farmer in my blood.
I got in an hour or so of puttering around; gathering up sticks and stems
and digging up a few weeds. Our long-long winter is fading into flowers. WooHoo!
