Today I planted my wee veggie patch. As I re-edged it to get rid of extraneous grass and weeds (read: dandelions), and turned over the soil, created rows, sowed basil and spinach and lettuce, transplanted wild poppies to other garden corners...
I realized I was both Gardener's Apprentice and Garden.
The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth;
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.
