I've been digging.
I've been weeding. Rooting out twitch grass from my flower beds.
I've been cutting back last year's perennials.
I've been pruning out errant raspberry canes.
And: my back is sore. My arms are scratched. I'm kinda filthy.
But: there's a great big grin on my face.
The hyacinths and daffodils in bloom in my garden smell glorious.
The sky is blue. The robins and cardinals are singing.
The leaves are unfolding on the chestnut trees and misting the lilac hedge.
