It seems to me…just in case you haven’t noticed, that I am quite often grumbling about one thing or another in my columns. I’m slightly behind in getting this into print … been so busy pulling weeds!

I have told you many times how much I enjoy my “outdoor” work … mowing, planting, trimming, weeding … and all the handwork that goes with all of these things. It’s good for the body and makes the soul feel good too, after you spend a considerable amount of time with beautiful things that you have helped to produce.
