But sometimes you get overwhelmed by a wave of circumstances that crashes through all those nice little walled partitions and affects everything...including gardening.
I had a bad fall at work last week, went in ambulance to the emergency room and have hurt my back. The good news is that I have no ruptured discs and as far as we know I've not reinjured my back from a long ago surgery in that area. I'm in recovery now with physical therapy and have now gone back to work. But, as a kinda sad joke, when asked if I'm OK, I just tell people 'It only hurts when I move'. un haha. :0)
Sooooooooo.....my poor wife has had to endure the pain with me and she's a trooper for taking on all the chores in the garden. We've had the blues, so the blue family of flowers is the theme.
These mini bouquets are really fun to make.
Angelonia, Sage, and Peppervine
Pink Garden Phlox, Licorice plant, and violet Lantana
Blackfoot Daisy, Blue Daze, and Violet Lantana
One of my teacher friends at school made this card for me with her scrapbooking skills.
Isn't it nice to have friends that care?
My doctor says I can do SOME gardening, but no heavy lifting for awhile.
A tip of the trowel to my garden blog buddy NOELLE for the monthly linky for MONTHLY BOUQUET.
I love making these.
