I am not a big fan of exercise, but I do love working in my garden. It is something I have done for many years. Although my garden is getting smaller as I get older, I still love getting my hands in the dirt and seeing the plants grow and produce. This is the kind of exercise I can get into.

I am posting this for Michele’s “What Moves You” challenge. We are to post a photo and a written response to show how we keep moving and stay healthy. You can read more about it at her Word Press site My Inspired Life.

  1. Thank you for joining us, Dwight! Your post moves on many levels. 🧑🏻‍🌾🌱 Love it! 💚 I am with you… the best form of exercise is moving the body with things that bring you joy! Gardening does that and it feeds you too! 😊

  2. Not the one for personal bending and diggingi must prefer the wordk done by a good gardener. But. I love flower gardens. I would sit for hours making crochet or embroidery. Though at age 73 poetry is what i do most now.

    Happy to have heard you read today Dwight.

  3. You would get along well with my son Dwight. He’s in his early early 40s so his garden keeps getting bigger 🙂 I really loved what you read this morning — Saturday morning. I’d love to see that in print, that was that was so beautiful. It really moved me. I love the way you took the approach of “paint me” and in all those wonderful places. Choked me up a little. 😢 Thanks for reading that my friend. 🙏🏽
    Sorry I didn’t have the energy to read mine a little better today.😕

    • Thank you so much Rob. It was good to see you this morning. I am sorry you are not feeling well today. I will send you a copy of the print version of the poem on email! Take care!


  4. And the rewards you get to reap from such bending and moving is tremendous. What a blessing. I love 👩🏻‍🌾 👨‍🌾 gardening. I plant flowers. Husband tends to the veggies. We could spend hours at this.
    So happy I read. 🤜🏼 🏆 🤛🏼
    😃 👏
