The Aster in my new header was given to me about 25 years ago. I have shared it with many and have moved a clump to 5 different homes. The first of the year when this home was started I brought a piece of this plant and put it by my mailbox. It never disappoints me. It will bloom - almost until snow falls.
I will transplant sections to other areas around my home after it quits blooming.
Most of my plants have been shared with me by special people. Most of these people are no longer here and when I look at this purple Aster I think of the special lady who shared much of her garden with me. Anna Lee, I miss you.
Callie is doing wonderful. Only ---- she does not like me out of her sight. I bought a crate with the thought that if she would tolerate it, then it would be good for times I am not home.
Well, that did not work and I returned it this morning. I keep her on the screen porch, deck and when I am outside she is loose.
I am not an inside dog person. All dogs in the past stayed outdoors unless it was extremely cold.
So....Callie, please be good.
I do not know if I shared that last week I had heart test. 3 hours of tests resulted from a severe panic attack I had a number of weeks ago that unsettled me.
I was at the city home and all of a sudden I became "overwhelmed". Overwhelmed with all that I have done this year. Building, up and down the road, slowly emptying one home and bringing to another - loading my vehicle and unloading with no help. I remember standing and looking at what is left in that home and also the fact that it is for sale in a stressed economy (I know my children - said - do not do this). Anyway I had a panic attack and thought I was having a heart attack.
GOOD NEWS - nothing wrong with my heart. Enough shared on this subject.
Rained again last night and early morning. Lunch time and it has finally stopped.
Continuing to look forward to seeing my first born daughter and first born granddaughter next week.
The happy heart runs with the river, floats on the air, lifts to the music, soars with the eagle, hopes with the prayer
