1st a series of 3 Lenten reflections

This is the back gate to just one of several woodland paths on our property. Don’t let anyone tell you that woodland gardens and paths are “no maintenance.” These paths and beds require a yearly springtime ritual of leaf-raking and re-mulching – a real workout – but it is SO worth the effort. When tidied like this, the paths and beds are inviting and just naturally beautiful. How exhausting and how satisfying!
