Gardening is one of the very few things in this world that makes me think simple thoughts. When I am in the garden, I get quiet, thoughtful and observant. My mind wonders, but does not exaggerate or overthink. Everything is simple. Slugs eat seedlings. Brambles pop out where they shouldn't. Squirrels eat the bird food. Trees grow.
I find myself asking very plain questions. Are the bees out yet? Is it warm enough to plant beans?
My water supply is running low. Will it rain soon? And then it rains and the water barrels are full and I am happy. I may sound like a crazy hippie, but it's lovely :)
