Last weekend, Flannery and I transplanted some of our seedlings into pots outside. We had shovels, but Flannery decided to use her hands because, as she says, "I love to get muddy." So far, only a few of our seedlings have been stolen by squirrels (or flexible rabbits?) :). And we're hoping to get our herbs and tomatoes transplanted soon.
Being in nature is so restorative to me. There's a calm that I don't think can just be attributed to a relaxing day off. That's why I've made "Experience Nature" one of my happiness commandments. When I follow it, it really does boost my happiness.
And now, for a weekend of muddy hands once again.
How are you going to experience nature on this "spring commencing" weekend?
