Thoughts on life while gardening

Two hands, some soil, and seeds






Things Hidden



Bursting with life

The garden has just been bursting with life of all kinds and it has brought me to a dilemma. Should I weed or not?

I am torn by this dilemma. A part of me says that I should welcome all the weeds and appreciate them for what they are. This same part of me says that I have no right to deny them their life and existence. Why do I have the urge to hammer the garden into what I want it to be?

Don't we, as human beings do this with pretty much everything? We hammer the world to make it fit what we think it should be.

A part of me says that this is a natural part of being human so it is ok. Yet a part of me denies the truth in this.

Why do I have the urge to pluck all the weeds and make the garden into what I believe is better?

Anyway, hidden in this lush little pocket of green are some wonderful suprises. Here is a page of pictures I have taken:
