The Zen of Pulling Weeds

Most of the year, my job requires me to be indoors on the computer.
So when a holiday arrives on a beautiful late-spring day like today,
I head for the outdoors.

I spent a couple of hours today pulling weeds out of the moss
that grows in our backyard.
Over time, the moss formed a soft carpet that hugs the ground,
but in spring, sourgrass, other grasses, and assorted weeds invade.
While I worked, the fountain gurgled and bubbled nearby
and a gentle breeze stirred the air.

No hurry, no where I had to be but kneeling on the green moss under the trees.
Definitely a zen experience
and one of the best ways to meditate and commune with nature.
