How can something as basic as planting seed be so utterly rewarding? By giving seeds just a little bit of love (read water) return so much more joy and pleasure. I love watching the little seeds grow. Everyday a little bigger. I feel like my heart smiles every time I go out to check on their progress.

And there's my shadow, Lily. This heart smiles some more.
