#COVID19Chronicles-39: May 23, 2020: Gardening therapy

Go out and play in the yard doesn’t mean climb a tree, or kick a ball; it can mean go and get into the dirt and plant something. I love gardening; it’s one of my truly relaxing pastimes. I like it for the changes that I see every day and many moments of every day. I love it that seeds turn to plants, turn to fruit or vegetables, turn to food on your table, I love the colours and shapes and feel of leaves that are crisp when living and crunchy when dying.

It’s really that simple.
