The Beatles were born into The Blues. Their early work is washed in the tinted tones of human suffering and a wailing against a natural born plot in life. When I recently watched the 1988 documentary — Imagine: John Lennon — I was provided us an intimate look into the making of John’s Imagine album, and I was struck by the kindness John and Yoko gave to a Stranger discovered living in a garden on their English estate.

It is once again time to get down and dirty. You know, the cabin fever takes a-hold of your senses just as that familiar smell wafts through an open window. You can’t do anything but obey that primal urge…..TO PLANT! Yes, I’m talking about gardening! Oh, how I love it! The smell of fresh dirt under my fingernails, the mud splatters that go up to my knees, and the satisfaction of ripping out those pesky weeds that think they’ve got a head-start on the real plants!
