yard work toils


God’s beauties

in the soil

Formulating the plans

to get it right this year

More creative in landscaping

Showing off the favourite colours

with the precious babies

in their greenhouse


Time is of the

most important here

Saskatchewan is windy



careless weather to play with

Using money to prepare

the yard

Back breaking bending


cultivating the rows

digging in the soil with my hands

end of day stiffness

but happy because

God watches us toil as I

care, love and

nurture plants,




and now I sit and rest

while I see projects that

I could start

and slide them aside

I have done enough

there is time

my back reminds me

to stretch, to move,

in honour

of the great work it did

to make our little spot on earth


this wagon…could not survive without it!
