Monday Map: Yearning to Dig
This is the time of year I yearn to be back out in the garden. I miss digging and planting and watering and that feeling of tearing a weed clean from the soil knowing I've gotten every bit of root.
Outside my studio window I can see the remnants of plants that I should have cleaned up in the fall. By then I was too tired. But now I'm re-energizing, for yet another season.
Have you noticed how the quality of late-afternoon light starts to change toward the end of January? Spring is coming!
