It's been said that playing in the dirt produces a hormone in the body that brings about health and wellbeing. Though I am not much of a gardener, I could certainly agree that going outside on a warm spring day and planting something does bring about a sense of calm and satisfaction. But for the sake of being perfectly honest, my husband planted the Lantana to the left at my request for the benefit of butterflies to come hopefully! Thanks, honey...
To plant something in the dirt, whether in the ground or in a pot, is exhilarating!!
“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”
― Margaret Atwood
