Besides playing with fine fabrics and lace, I also love playing in the dirt!
Some might refer to it as gardening or working in the yard.
It has been almost two years since I was able to do this.
When the thyroid disease first began, a high heart rate prevented me from doing much.
Last summer, I learned double vision, combined with sharp gardening tools, could be damaging and deadly to both human and plant life.
Once again, I can play in the dirt!
Not only was I prevented from gardening these past two years, my husband was unable to much. He had his own health issues, and was often taking care of me.
Yesterday, we took advantage of warm temperatures, grabbed gardening tools and went to work!
Due to a more harsh winter than usual, and two years of neglect, there was plenty to do.
The deadwood was removed from my hydrangeas above. The roses were finally pruned, along with other trees and shrubs. Lots and lots of leaves were raked.
Good thing Mondays are pick-up for garden recycling and bulk trash.
There is still lots of work to do, and hopefully more warm Spring days to come.
There was lots of soap and water, before I started to play with fabric and lace again!
"No occupation is as delightful to me as the culture of the earth,
and no culture comparable to that of the garden."
