    Winter Daydream

    I wish I could go outside and play in the dirt. Adore colorful blooms, smell sweet scents, just sit amongst them. I look out my window, seeing all I could be doing. Preparing for spring and all the new growth. The herb garden is totally out of hand. Must tame it down. Dug some...

    Lol I shared this one

    as I work as a gardener but all the XP's I see here are from hobbies. I've been doing it since I was 10 and started full time by 15. I had no place in school and my dad told me if I didn't go to school I'd have to pay rent and that's when I started working. I earned good money...

    Now I wait. ;-) Hundred of seeds are sown,

    filling up all my sunny windows. From here on out, first thing each morning I will go see if any seeds are breaking ground. wow... I can't wait. It's so intense for me to watch something so tiny as a seed, grow and breathe. Oh happy days!
