Days are very hot
90 on deck most afternoons and mosquito's have arrived.
Plus do not like that I am now bringing in bird feeders
in the evening as it seems the squirrels are cleaning them out.
Put them back out at daybreak...
Did not notice as many wild flowers in the woods this Spring
but did not walk the paths like in the past.
Straw bale garden looks kind of sad at the moment :)
checked information and I may have planted to soon
before following instructions for 10 days. Also learned
I need to water more often - like 2 or 3 times a day and
fertilize good - which I am now doing.
Update, filled the last straw bale last night and those plants
are doing good. It sat empty for 10 days and was watered
daily and fertilize added to soil.
Some of my Iris did not bloom this year and wonder why?
I moved my Hollyhocks to a new location
and one made it
look at these leaves
and corn is about 8 inches high
Recent trip to garden center and I look longingly at the plants
but vow to buy no more... but purchased one today an inexpensive Foxglove
and will see how it does...Lowe's price was twice as much.
Unsettled about situation in my son's land :( but he assures
me all is well.
A lot of reflection lately, nothing to do with anything but - just me
at this time of life. Trying not to share a lot with my children and wish
they would just say "checking on you and close with I love you."
Do not want to be boring or continually talk about how I feel
even though they ask. Just cannot seem to pretend and be jolly a lot
and cannot seem to pretend I do not like what is happening with health issues.
One day I think they have disappeared and I am so busy and happy.
Then another day and night they return with a vengeance.
Arthritis is not on a schedule and balance is severely off.
But thankful I do all that needs to be done in my world
just want to do more :)
Excellent diet, very little medication, exercise, rest, meditation
doing all I know and will not stop.
I an so different from my mother, aunts and grandmother's
who are all gone at this time.
On my visits and they were younger, my age and beyond, it seems most
of the time they were calmly sitting. This is not what
is happening here by the woods :)
Eventually you would think
that the body would stop trying to keep up with the mind,
and does the mind keep giving instructions
until the end
And I will leave you with a smile
New words from my youngest granddaughter to her mom.
"She looks good, even though she has old freckles like you :)"
