Big bear chase me.

11 Crepe Myrtles. 11 holes dug with a shovel. 11 wheelbarrows full of dirt moved from the front yard to the back. 18 cubic feet of potting soil hoisted on my shoulders to the 11 holes. 18 cubic feet of hardwood mulch spread to the 11 holes.
Shovel.
Wheelbarrow.
Knife.
Myself.
Dirty hands and sweat from the brow stinging my eyes.
I dare say it’s free therapy.
I dare say it is Church.

By the end I’m telling myself “just one more rep….”

At the end I’m telling myself “big bear chase…”

    ’tis the season for planting…crepe myrtles are beautiful trees. The pay off will definitely be worth the effort, when they are strong enough to flower.

    Saw this in the reader the other day after coming in from getting a few garden beds ready to plant. Definitely my church too. 🙂
