If only it were that simple.
Yesterday was the perfect day to work in my gardens. My honey and I spent the morning sprucing up the flower beds, clearing out the ravages of Winter to welcome the coming of Spring. TULIPS love popping through the soil into a clean garden. I'm quite certain it has been proven in some scientific study that debris free gardens bestow HAPPIER, BRIGHTER, longer lasting tulips... and more cheerful gardeners! At least that's what I convinced myself to think as I toiled in the garden yesterday.
The BIRDS were happy to see us, they sang delightful melodies to keep us company. Our aging bones required stops every now and then to recharge and their sweet songs cheered us on. We made our mark, though there is still much to do... another fine day. Today, Sunday, we rest.
Besides the two inch tulips rising from the soil, we were excited to find a few places with emerging green as we pulled the dead branches from the perennial garden, and a few more swelling buds on the trees and shrub. Now we just need a bajillion rays of SUNSHINE to wake up this sleepy place.
Today is the beginning of Daylight Savings Time in our Utah gardens. We move our clocks forward an hour each Spring, if we don't... we're late for church today and anything else we have scheduled for the next six months. In the the Fall we move the clocks back an hour. Fall Back.
Wouldn't it be nice if it were as easy as changing the clocks?
