Signs of spring :: sticky clay

20090317 (Small)

The result of my first gardening this year. Nothing serious yet, just planting something my neighbor brought by. But digging, watering and planting gets you this. A thick layer of clay sticking to the clogs.
And yes, I’m sorry to disappoint you all. I wear Swedish clogs in the garden, instead of Dutch wooden shoes. I even think the clogs are more common here!
