I am not bound for any public place, but for ground of my own where I have planted vines and orchard trees, and in the heat of the day climbed up into the healing shadow of the woods. Better than any argument is to rise at dawn and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup. ~Wendell Berry

When you are ready, bend your right knee and bring it to your chest and hold it there with your hands. Breathe. When you are ready, let it go and lay flat again. Then bend your left knee and bring your leg to your chest and hold it there. Breathe. Repeat 3 or 4 times with each leg.

p.s Sage is all better today : ) She was back to her fat, fuzzy, ornery, peanut eating, pantleg chewing, shoelace untying self today and I couldn't be happier. Thanks for the well wishes for her.
Make sure you lay the washer on a hard cement surface.
Place the stamp where you want it,
and hit it hard a couple of times.
Then trace over the letters with the Sharpie,
give it a few seconds to dry

Oh - but don't stop there : )
Along the subject of seeds - did you know that Clint Baker over at The Redeemed Gardner is having a seed give-away? He would love for you to stop by and leave him a comment. The seeds are from Botanical Interests, which is the same place that the herb seeds in my photo above came from. He has LOTS of useful and practical advice for gardeners on his blog.
