A Perfect Day

The sun is shining although it's not too hot, and the flowers are blooming. I worked in the gardens for awhile, then stopped to have a picnic lunch with my husband and daughter -- and our mooching dog, of course.

I had to come in for a bit to rest, but will going back out to work again. Only another gardener will understand how getting sweaty and filthy, with dirt ground into your knees, back aching, and arms sore could be enjoyable. But nothing compares to being in my garden.
And the muse -- I get the best ideas while amid my herbs and flowers. Perhaps this evening one of those ideas will be ready for me to start putting it into story form...

So as I get ready to head back outside, I wish you a Happy Fourth of July!
