So maybe this is an easy excuse to get rolling again with the blog. It is rainy out and the girls are not going to be here today. So I have some time I had not anticipated. I managed to get my printer working yesterday. A crumpled piece of paper had worked its way under the print-head. Anyway I loaded photos from both cameras into the computer. So now I have something to share.
Before my “miracle” cure with the drug Campath of my previously fatal rare illness, t-cell prolymphocytic leukemia, I, of course, had no grandchildren. None of my own children were even married yet, or even in serious relationships. Now I have four beautiful granddaughters (after having raised three boys) – Sophia – 4, Isabel – 2, the twins Gemma and Molly – 7 months. Do it gives me an opportunity to post some photos from their recent visit.
Over the years I have dabbled in gardening. But it was not until “retirement” and a rather large, sunny yard that I got more seriously interested in horticulture. As I mentioned before, we have 2500-3000 square feet devoted to various flower and vegetable beds. Over 100 American and English roses, heathers, Russian sage, lilacs bushes, columbines, thymes, speedwell, wiegelas, Rose of Sharons, sedum, campanula, clematis, peonies, dianthus, delphinium, hollyhocks, hostas, lavender, phlox, and more. So I will be sharing photos of these. I like to buy shriveled, sad-looking clearance plants and bring them back to life. The symbolism of this act not lost on me.
