We have been trying to spend a little time working outside in the garden each day. It needs a lot of attention!
A couple of days ago, as I pulled grass out of the flower bed, I heard an interesting conversation between two of my children. Patrick asked, "Why do the bleeding hearts always come up at this time of year?" Theresa replied, "Bleeding hearts come up at this time of year because it is Lent and Lent was Jesus' really sad time. By Easter, there will be a lot more flowers because then we don't need to be sad anymore."
