Nature: It does a body good!

Spring has been teasing me this week with sunny skies and warmer temperatures, white fluffy clouds with wide expanses of blue between and no, I repeat, NO rain for many days.

I know it’s but a brief interlude before more moisture falls, so outside I have been.

Digging in the garden – I even found a patch of potatoes that had wintered over in-ground. Nothing has tasted as good lately as those potatoes did on my plate later in the evening.
