Early Morning Paradise

"(Gardening) is not graceful, and it makes one hot; but it is a blessed sort of work, and if Eve had had a spade in Paradise and known what to do with it, we should not have had all that sad business of the apple." Elizabeth, Countess von Arnim (1866-1941)

It's going to be hot again today, but at six in the morning the day is calm and soothing. In my garden  whacking away at bushes overlapping their neighbors' space and deadheading roses, embraced by cool air, I, like Eve, was in paradise with no idea of what might happen to me in a few short verses.

Baruch ata adonai may I enjoy every minute of this lovely day. Amen
