Weeding the rhubarb bed
as new buds begin to show.
Back-breaking work!


A day and a half spent weeding
the rhubarb patch
before the leaves get too big
to work around.
Back-breaking yet ultimately


Weeding the garden
the first dry day after rain,
my hands caked with mud.

Digging and Weeding

Aching muscles
from digging and weeding.
The result in the garden
rewarding and pleasing.
Thankful to stop now —
it’s raining!


Early morning;
a chubby robin and me
weeding the garden
before it rains.
