What chore do you find the most challenging to do?
Bloganuary Prompt for January 12, 2023

Hope to work more in the yard this year, at the pace that is right for my health now. Began again last year, with some work and an old chair for rest. Careful about the sun, and I wear sunglasses. Our gardens are mostly perennials. These are good years.
