|This was a LOT of work|
|The Garden Claw|
It took me two days of sunny weather, Sunday and yesterday afternoon, to completely clear my own plot of those marauders, plus some dandelions. The only thing nice about buttercups are their name, trust me. Oh, and by the way, I thought I was in good shape! This morning in exercise class I realized that my hamstrings are very sore, as well as my left palm from twisting the Garden Claw with all my might. Even though I walk and hike every week, I don't stand and pull weeds, so those hamstrings got a real workout. Now I need to peruse some catalogs and decide what will go in there. Sugar snap peas, of course (they were a wonderful addition last year), beets, and maybe, if I can find them, some purple carrots!

How quickly our lives can change. I'm so very grateful for my life, and an event like this one always makes me pause and reflect on how much the present moment means.
