Tweets in my garden

I just couldn't resist it - the garden was beckoning me, inviting me to come and play with the grass that needed mowing, the pond that needed refilling, the clematis that needed tidying up. The sun was bright and warm! Shall I go out or shall I stay in????

I couldn't resist the temptation!

Now at the end of the day of getting the garden ready for spring, despite the aching back and stiff muscles I feel much younger and rejuvinated. It seems a day out in the garden has given me back all the mental energy I have used up since I started Reflect and Connect 2011. I know I have some assignments to finish but I have no regrets about leaving them undone on a day like this and hear the authentic tweets of live sparrows, wagtails, robins in the apple tree. In fact, I feel research shows that tending the garden, exercises the brain, giving us more energy and a zest for life.

I am now prepared for Session 4 on Monday but tomorrow (Sunday) rain is on the way so I can enjoy the garden from the conservatory while I sit and do my assignments!

    It sounds like your day in the garden with the authentic twitterers was much needed.
    Good on you for taking the time out to relax and enjoy your garden. :)
