An on-line friend once mentioned that she imagined me in the garden in a long floral skirt or dress and a pretty hat. Though that sounds picturesque and romantic, the truth is much more mundane. I generally garden in shorts and a tshirt, or jeans and a sweatshirt, depending on the weather. I never wear a hat and I'm usually barefoot. Haiku snapped this photo on the butterfly garden trail as I was taking a little break the other day from working in the veggie garden. I was glad to be amid the flowers with my daughter, with the shadow of elm leaves dancing across my face.
