Thought I had better do a little something on my blog before I forget how. It is not that I have nothing to report about family and gardening, its just that all my time is devoted of late to just keeping things maintained so that I can devote most of my time to helping MeMa in her recuperation. We went to the hospital yesterday and they removed the large cast but there was not a significant change so they put another large cast back on (bright pink) which is most uncomfortable because they had to tweak the position in order to get a proper mend on the bone. MeMa is a normally overactive lady with much to do at all times so being forced to let others do for her is probably the most painful of all. So here are some shots of an early morning stroll before the house comes alive.
|I was up early, coffee in hand and fortunately camera as well. I just love this little rose, it is a rambler "Apple Blossom" from 1932|
|At the footbridge my favorite Acanthus mollis or Bears Britches is lush and green overhanging the path and back wall of the Koi pond|
|And at the other end of the pond sitting gloriously to the left of the Budgie aviary is the giant leafed Gunnera which we thought we lost this last winter.|
|My clump of light blue Delphiniums are just coming into their own along side the unusual looking yellow Phlomis russeliana, one of MeMas favorite for dried flower arranging.|
|They even managed to startle the family of song sparrows nesting in among the large Clematis jackamanii growing on the chicken yard fabric|
|A quick water in the greenhouse and back inside to fix a nice breakfast for the recuperating MeMa. I hope all is well with everyone, sorry I have not been able to follow as much these days.|
