Charlie helped me prepare a new bed for planting some mixed wildflower seeds. Apparently for Charlie, gardening is a no shirt, no shoes, no shorts activity.
Gardening also requires lying down in the new bed because you love the warm earth so much.
Whatever ends up coming up in this new bed, I will always remember the happiness Charlie felt because he enjoyed playing in the dirt so much, and my own satisfaction in being able to provide him with that experience.
I'm sure the flowers will be twice as beautiful because the spot is imprinted with Charlie's love that he infused into the soil with his sweet little body.
