Pretty as Dirt
I know it may just look like a patch of dirt (or is it soil once there are seeds in it?) but I think it's pretty beautiful. To me it looks so rich and inviting and full of potential. If I was a seed I'd want to snuggle right in and get down to business. It was mild and just a little overcast this afternoon, so I threw caution to the wind and planted lettuce and peas. Tomorrow if it's not raining I'll do some spinach. I love dirt. Once I start mucking around in it I keep trying to think of more things to do. Transplant some houseplants? Divide some hostas? Go to the garden centre and buy some bags of dirt? I try to show some discipline and just pick out stones...
