Be Here Now Lesson
After returning from a walk yesterday (cross that off the list), I thought it would be a good time to tackle some pruning (to cross that off the list) while I had on my outer gear of hat, gloves, etc. I grabbed the shears and gave the butterfly bush its new start for the year and then started working on the Fairy Rose. I was busy pruning away, my mind already on the fresh growth and blooms that would appear over the next few months. Finally, I looked down and saw I was trampeling the crocuses making their way up through the leaf debree and the recent snow. Stop. Breathe. Smile. Be grateful for what is now.
