I'd forgotten how much I love to get out in the yard and and do gardening. I did a little work in the garden today -- not much, but some -- so I've got dirt under my fingernails. But that's fine. It means I've gotten a little closer to nature, which is good.
By the way, I know that it's still winter over in the eastern side of the USA, but it's already spring where I am. (Or anyways, it's spring so far as the plants and I are concerned.) Below I share photographic evidence of this. I took these photos today, by the way.
