The Garden Chronicles, Feb. 15, 2009
The soil: wet, clay, dark, red, could form into a ball. May have to mix in some top soil or organic matter.
It felt good to feel the dirt in my hands. Got a sense of connectedness to the earth. Loved the basic simplicity of interacting with the natural resources. And feeling the sun on my skin is always a welcome comfort. I was only outside for a short time but felt a bit of renewal and rejuvenation. I'm also feeling that gardening will be a peaceful experience and I'm excited to begin this small undertaking. Another note; the birds sounded lovely, playful and full of joy. And that sunshine is the ultimate bliss.
