    makes me wonder, kids or plants or projects or.......read several of you pieces, really like them a lot. fantastic take on nature, love the one where you are required to continue to lay still under the tree and listen to the breeze.......i need to do that more often......

    That would make any gardener sad. Congratulations on being one of the winners in Brian's contest. Enjoy your success. Wishing you many more. Karen

    Hey, I really like this one. I need to go see all the winners of this contest!! You earned a reward for sure with your footle. LUv, Andrea ps. I relate to this((even though yours might be metaphorical) because we are using irrigation water on our yard and I swear it has seeds in it from the mountains and is making horrid weeds pop up all over our grass!!

    Darn, that happened to me last year, Nick. Kept thinking the tomato seeds were sprouting but they turned out to be only wees -- not one tomato plant in the entire gardens. In the words of Bill Clinton, "I feel your pain." Well done footle! Love, Carolyn

    Loved it! I've stopped writing because I seem to have a lull in my creativity. Don't know why. Hope to be back on the track soon.
