Bury my heart underneath these trees

I’m three days back at work now, and it’s alternately wonderful and awful.  I’m so glad to be back at work, but I so hate to be trapped inside.  I am doing interesting research and finding all sorts of things out, but the weather has been lovely.  And I have never felt more irrelevant.  I know the research I’m doing is important, but I belong in the garden and it makes me crazy not being there.  I feel so useless.  My coworkers have been decorating my cast, which is keeping me laughing.

It looked too much like a sock puppet to not decorate it with some eyes.

And now that I’m back at work, I’ve had a chance to get back to taking some pictures of the gardens.
