Another day of sunshine! We’ve opened all the doors
To air out winter’s stuffiness and complete some outdoor chores.
I head with gloves and shovels to my favorite garden room
To weed my big azalea bed with the dogwoods in full bloom
Goodbye to vines and monkey grass …Tally Ho! I charge ahead!
But soon my shovel’s on the ground and I’m in the bath instead.
In this very urban garden setting, whoever would have thunk. . .
My garden might ever harbor a very smelly skunk!
