I needed to get some gardening done

I needed to get some gardening done
Isnt life strange? I knew I needed to get out in the garden and plant some of the vegtables and seeds as the spring season was flying past. The weather had been colder this year than for many years.  Where do the days go?
Spring cleaning was also high on my list as I settled down on the computer to write my latest columb.
It was our musical jam night tonight and I often had the previlage of opening the evening.I sing a few songs and then we go into Jamming .
I had been tired from the week – end of having the grand children, but had found some energy to enjoy the evening.
On my way home , I got out of the taxi and caught my heel in a pot hole in the ground. I went flying and ended up fallen on my face, needing stiches.
It has been horrific, the shock and all. It has taken over two weeks before I could get back to work.
Each day sfter the first three, ( when I spent most of the day sleeping off the shock and anescetic) I did a little in my garden.
I planted seeds. Pricked out seedlings. Then over the last week – end, planted potatoes, raspberries and cabbage plants.
My husband bought some new fruit trees and got them planted.
Then there is the grass to mow,the paths to sweep. I found I had drifted into a different consioness, out in my garden. It had helped me forget my wounds, and see the beutiful things around me. It was very healing.
The bees were buzzing , the butterflies courting, the birds singing, and next doors cat came in to say hello.
Bliss. I guess I had needed grounding. My face is healing very nicely and my energy is returning.
The garden is growing in the down pour of this mornings rain. Well timed you might say.
I have always been a gardener . I grew up with parents and grandparents who gardened. It is here I feel closer to God.
