That's what it's all about.  I put a lot of work into my garden, but will
never let the garden become "work".  I stop and marvel at new growth and
waste time dragging twine through the grass for Mick to pounce.  Sometimes
things don't get done, but enough always does.  I love the chance to sit
back in the Adirondack chair with a cat on my lap.
